Brothers of the Black List tells the story behind the longest litigated civil rights case in U.S. history. It all began in September 1992, when an elderly women in Oneonta, NY reported that she had been attacked in an attempted rape by a young black male who cut his hand during the altercation. This led to a college administrator at nearby SUNY Oneonta giving police a list of the names and residences of all 125 black males in town, questioning them and demending to see their hands.

He also serves as a Media Advisor on the Advisory Board of Engeye Scholars, a non-profit that supports the educational needs of children living in and around Ddegeya Village in Uganda. Brothers of the Black List is Sean's first feature-length work.
