“Losing Our Sons” is a film telling the story of Carlos Bledsoe and Andy Long. Carlos Bledsoe was an African-American from a Baptist family who converted to Islam. On June 9, 2009, Carlos Bledsoe murdered Andy Long, a U. S. Army Recruiter in Little Rock, Arkansas. Carlos Bledsoe states that he did it “for Allah.” The film traces Carlos’ path from middle class student to American jihadi, and shows how American institutions at every level failed us all. The film will be shown in Stoughton, Massachusetts, on October 10th. Please see upcoming events for details.
Melvin Bledsoe and Darius Long, fathers of both young men, will speak at the event.
I have seen this film. It is well worth seeing.
