Default Producers of "message movies"

I have a film about an African American artist I'm trying to pitch. I am trying to get a sense of which producers (who are currently working) would be open to a film like this, which I suppose is a sort of "message/feel good" film. If anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate it.

I would never say I have a "message" film. There is a storied bias against that, Western Union, etc. Probably because good stories don't lead with MESSAGE, they craftily weave in theme. Maybe your story is inspirational. Look at others like yours and see who's making those and how they market. A good place to start is "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete," written by Michael Starrbury, who used to come in here sometimes, you can search for the thread.

Oh, I would never say I have a message movie. This isn't my first rodeo. I'm simply using that term as a shorthand here to get information.

Also, do you know Starrbury's screen name? There is only one thread that popped up in the search for him and he didn't seem to be in it.
