T.D. Jakes’ “Woman Thou Art Loosed: On the 7th Day” in Theaters April 13th

Woman Thou Art LoosedBishop T.D. Jakes of The Potter’s House in Dallas, Texas, is trying to raise awareness about the alarming number of missing black Americans with his new movie, “Woman Thou Art Loosed!: On the 7th Day.”

According to 2011 statistics provided
by the Black and Missing Foundation, Inc. (BAM FI), which Jakes is
working with, 85 percent out of all minorities missing in the U.S. are
African-American. That is a glaring number, taking into account that
black people make up approximately only 13 percent of the total U.S.
population.

BAM FI describes itself as a nonprofit with a mission
to bring awareness to missing persons of color, provide vital resources
and tools to missing person’s families and friends and to educate the
minority community on personal safety.

One reason suggested for
the great number of unsolved missing black persons cases is that the
media does not focus on them very much. According to the Electronic Urban Report, such stories account for only 23 percent of all news reports.

This
lack of exposure is a problem Jakes explores in his upcoming “Woman
Thou Art Loosed!: On the 7th Day” film (directed by award-winning
filmmaker Neema Barnette), which he produced and distributed through
Codeblack Entertainment, and is scheduled for a theatrical release on
April 13.

The plot of the movie revolves around an
African-American couple whose daughter is abducted. Over the course of
seven days, they begin to uncover secrets about their past that threaten
to rip their marriage and lives apart.
