Turnipseed Film Trilogy – John Turnipseed is a former gang leader, pimp and drug dealer, who spent his childhood battling demons brought on by a volatile, abusive Father in a 20 year journey. John has transformed into a community leader, pastor, speaker, and serves as the Executive Vice President of Urban Ventures Leadership Foundation, a non-profit set in the heart of the same Minneapolis, Minnesota gang territory that John and his family terrorized.
John’s life-changing turnaround fueled his passion for rebuilding relationships between fathers and their families. Starring accomplished actor Lawrence Gilliard, Jr. as John Turnipseed, the Turnipseed Trilogy explores first the relationship between John and his Father, then what John did with his “Second Chance”. And finally, the relationship between John and his own son, as he defines his “Legacy”. Learn more or order the DVD here
