Chauncey Bailey murder inspires film
The 2007 murder of Oakland Post editor Chauncey Bailey has inspired a movie that's hit the film festival circuit, the Chronicle reports. Carmen Madden, a lifelong Oakland resident and English teacher at Ohlone College, raised $300,000 to produce "Everyday Black Man," which she wrote and directed. Its official theatrical premiere is at the historic Bal Theatre in San Leandro, next Friday and Saturday.
