The film will re-air nationally in February of 2021 to comemorate Black History Month, and the original soundtrack, featuring a diverse collection of artists from Blues Hall-of-Famer Joe Louis Walker, to renowned jazz pianist Cyrus Chestnut, to noted gospel singers Ada Dyer, Janice Dempsey, and Sharon Bryant, to 18-year old TikTok sensation Kyla Imani was released by Valley Entertainment and is currently streaming online.

Almost at the same time, the Telluride and New York Film Festival sellout, and Hampton and Sarasota Film Festivals' Audience award winner, and critically acclaimed film Oliver Sacks: His Own Life", was theatrically released nationwide by Kino Lorber and Zeitgeist Films.
