Local Filmmaker's Latest Documentary Airs Monday

"Walter P. Carter: Champion for Change," follows the life of a civil rights leader from Baltimore, who is often referred to as the Martin Luther King of Maryland.

An Oscar- and Emmy-winning documentarian from Cape St. Claire will debut her latest documentary, focusing on civil rights leader Walter P. Carter, on Monday night.

Susan Hannah Hadary, of Cape St. Claire, and her colleague John Anglim of MedSchool Maryland Productions, together produced the film on Carter, titled Walter P. Carter: Champion for Change.

Carter, a civil rights leader from Baltimore, is often referred to as the Martin Luther King of Maryland. He led the Congress on Racial Equality in Baltimore.

Hadary and Anglim won an Emmy in 2012 for their documentary Departing Rosewood, and Hadary won an Oscar and a Peabody Award in 2000 for her documentary, King Gimp.

Hadary said she and Anglim were commissioned by Anthony Lehman, chairman of the department of psychiatry at University of Maryland, to create Champion for Change.

"He has a building on the University of Maryland Baltimore Campus named the Walter P. Carter building, and when he found out it was named after a Baltimore civil rights leader, he wanted to find out about the history of this important person," Hadary said.

Walter P. Carter: Champion for Change is scheduled to debut on Maryland Public Television at 10:30 p.m. Monday night.
