In early 2015, Roaming Roosters was founded in Washington, D.C. by a family with a unique concept. The idea of a food truck with fried chicken that you could feel good about eating: free-range, grain-fed chicken served fresh every day. Within months, word got out on social media about the delicious poultry menu and the demand for Roaming Roosters soon called for the expansion from one food truck to three. Since then, the popularity of the only food trucks in D.C. serving tasty free-range chicken has grown massively.
Requests for catering, private events and scheduled food truck visits have been pouring in from D.C. and the surrounding areas of Maryland and Northern Virginia. The fast expansion of Roaming Roosters in just under a year is easy to explain - where your food comes from matters, and we bring that ideal to every meal we serve.

Interview with director Jacquelin OliveAbout the filmALWAYS IN SEASON explores the lingering impact of more than a century of lynching African Americans and connects this form of historic racial terrorism to racial violence today. The film centers on the case of Lennon Lacy, an African American teen who was found hanging from a swing set in Bladenboro, North Carolina, on August 29, 2014. Despite inconsistencies in the case, local officials quickly ruled Lennon’s death a suicide, but his mother, Claudia, believes Lennon was lynched. Claudia moves from paralyzing grief to leading the fight for justice for her son. As the film unfolds, Lennon’s case, and the suspicions surrounding it, intersect with stories of other communities seeking justice and reconciliation. A few hundred miles away in Monroe, Georgia, a diverse group of re-enactors, including the adult daughter of a former Ku Klux Klan leader, annually dramatize a 1946 quadruple lynching to ensure the victims are never forgotten and encourage the community to come forward with information that might bring the perpetrators to justice. As the terrorism of the past bleeds into the present, the film asks: what will it take for Americans to begin building a national movement for racial justice and reconciliation?
