About

Writer/Producer Alethia Brown, has been granted rights by the family of Daisy Myers for the film adaption of the book Sticks 'n Stones written by Daisy Myers to tell her story about the racial harassment she and her husband endured in Levittown, PA in 1957.  What Mrs. Myers and her husband endured began the racial discrimination housing laws that exist today. We are proud to be given this opportunity to tell her story exactly how she experienced it. We look forward to your support of getting her story told.

HERE is a dramatic movie that chronicles the courage of Bill and Daisy Myers the first black family to move into a prominently white subdivision in Levittown, PA and their 9-day ordeal of intense racial harassment, screaming mobs, racial epithets, rocks through the windows, the taunts and name-calling and cross-burnings and the day-and-night blaring of "Old Black Joe" in front of their home August 1957. The Myers endured an ordeal that few could have weathered with such dignity, courage, grace, and fortitude.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge with this project is ensuring we are wanting to share Daisy Myers family's ordeal from 1957 and the racial harassment they endured pursuing the American dream, owning a home in a area that would be beneficial for their family and not ignite racial divide on the issue they experienced.
