"Until We're All Free (Ain't Nobody Free)" is a collaboration between Memphis folk rocker John Kilzer and saxophonist Kirk Whalum. Archer Records tapped director Laura Jean Hocking to bring its egalitarian message to life. "Ward Archer and I went through several ideas before settling on this one," Hocking says. "When we got Amurica photography owner Jamie Harmon and director of photography Sarah Fleming on board, they helped flesh out the concept. Jamie's kind of like the Wizard of Oz, promising these children things that are supposed to be their inalienable rights, but which are not available to a lot of Americans. I didn't have much experience working with children before this, so I had a little trepidation going in. But I was so fortunate to get a great cast. They made my life easy. Our hero kid Solly Philips was a dream. He took direction better than a lot of grown ups do."
