Isaiah Owens, the owner of Owens Funeral Home, in Harlem in New York is featured in Christine Turner's documentary film "Homegoings". The film features Owens and his funeral home as it studies African-American traditions of death. Owens, who moved to New York in the 1960's, opened the funeral home and with just word of mouth and little advertising has become the paramount funeral home in Harlem, due to his care and understanding.
