They Die By Dawn is a film based on the true life African-American Cowboys of the old west. With an all-star cast including Giancarlo Esposito, Michael K Williams, Nate Parker, Jesse Williams, Rosario Dawson, Isaiah Washington, Erykah Badu, Bokeem Woodbine and Harry Lennix, the film sets out to tell the story of a showdown between the real life characters.

Written and directed by Englishman Jeymes Samue who has written and produced music for a slew of successful artists including Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jay-Z, Jay Electronica, Tori Amos & Mos Def under the moniker  ‘The Bullitts’.

Actor Michael K Williams talks about working with Jeymes Samuel and how he managed to fulfill his dream cast for the movie which seemed unreachable at first having never dealt with people’s agents before.

In the Okay Player video below Williams talks about playing rich, free slaves in Langston, Oklahoma during the late 1800’s which would have been what ‘we would consider Black Wall Street’.

Williams says, “We made history on this film. I can’t wait for the world to see it’.
