When a Union soldier flees from battle, rescue comes unexpectedly from Kitch (RJ Cyler), a free black man and his band of friends. Risking everything, Kitch takes William (Gerran Howell) deep into the woods to the safety of his adopted home. It is here that William discovers Kitch is a part of a secret community of freed slaves, who run a portion of the Underground Railroad. However, when a ruthless and desperate slave catcher (Ewen Bremner) discovers the underground network, he conspires to bring it burning down to the ground.

Freedom’s Path will open in 200+ AMC and Regal theatres nationwide during Black History Month beginning February 3, 2023. Freedom’s Path will be released in over 50 major theatrical markets (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle) with a specialty screening event in Atlanta to include a panel discussion with producers and celebrity cast members.
HBCU GO will support the ﬁlm’s theatrical release in AMC and Regal theaters across the country by inviting students, alumni, faculty, and the community to attend and join the conversation.
As part of the feature ﬁlm release, HBCU GO will launch its community giving initiative, “HBCU GO Give 365” to inspire and engage the Black community to lean in and provide much needed funding to HBCU higher learning institutions. HBCU GO will kick oﬀ this community giving initiative by donating a portion of ticket sales from the movie release in February directly to HBCUs that support the arts.
“We’re proud to support the movie FREEDOM’S PATH by engaging the HBCU community to join this important conversation,” said Byron Allen, Founder/Chairman/CEO of Allen Media Group. “Our partnership with the ﬁlm, and the launch of HBCU GO Give 365 aligns with Allen Media Group’s commitment to education as a path to economic inclusion.”
