Butch: Legend of Langston

Easily the most recognizable character of Langston University for over 50 years, Butch is loved by all and known by none. Set in the nation’s westernmost HBCU (historically black college or university), Butch: Legend of Langston explores the many myths, stories, and legends of a man who has lived on campus since 1961.

Production for this film spanned from San Francisco to New York City, and many important themes were explored including Autism Spectrum Disorder and the impact of community.
