In this episode of The History of Black Cinema we explore John Singleton. John Daniel Singleton (January 6, 1968 – April 28, 2019) was an American film director, screenwriter, producer, and actor. He was best known for writing and directing Boyz n the Hood in 1991, for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director, becoming, at age 24, the first African American and youngest person to have ever been nominated for that award. #johnsingleton #blackhistory #boyzinthehood #ourconic #blackcinema #movies #blackdirectors #thehistoryofblackcinema
