History of Roanoke Rescue Mission
New Moon Creative Media produced “Looking Back,” a 30-minute documentary series for Cox Communications. This episode features the history of the Roanoke Rescue Mission. In a time when the United States was segregated, a minister and his family see need in the community and open a shelter for anyone in need, no matter their race or religion. This is a history of one of Virginia’s largest homeless shelters.
Cox Communications contracted New Moon Creative Media to produce a series of 30 minute shows on Roanoke landmarks. The series, “Looking Back,” aired on Cox 9 and won several Telly Awards.
