I Am Stone

White is the color of the captains of industry. Isaiah Stone did not fit in. Sure, he made many of them rich, but was never treated as an equal due to the color of his skin. No dinners or drinks at the club. He rose to his position by knowing what to do and when to do. And now he has decided to leave the stage. Isaiah has one request. Enter Ramon Baptiste DuSable. Top of his class at Stanford Law. Wildly successful trading international corporate portfolios and a man of color. Isaiah Stone sees in Ramon the continuation his legacy; as an interrupter to the white supremacist culture by joining Simon and Associates.

Director Statement

TKB started production on I AM STONE in April 2019, with a team all carrying different experiences that are reflected in the film. “I AM STONE” clearly delivers the message of entrenched and systematic racism by shining a light on the fat cat old boys club, which fights
to keep the status quo.
