The Montford Point Marines web site and documentary began after a chance meeting with Dr. Clarence Willie, Lieutenant Colonel, Retired, United States Marine Corps. Dr. Willie was the assistant superintendent of schools in Brunswick County when he met Dr. Melton McLaurin, a UNCW professor who specialized in the American South and race relations. At the time, Dr. McLaurin knew vaguely of the Montford Point Maries; over time, McLaurin got to know them very well. After coordinating with various institutions with an interest in the Montford Point Marines, and securing funding, Dr. Willie and Dr. McLaurin met with and interviewed Montford Point veterans, eventually speaking with over sixty veterans for more than 2,800 minutes.
