BAM invites their guests to celebrate the work of John Singleton, the late cinema legend who brought us Shaft and Poetic Justice. His films grapple with big-picture ideas—racism, masculinity, and the American Dream—with profound humanity. When he was nominated for a Best Director Oscar for his groundbreaking debut feature Boyz n the Hood, Singleton became both the first African-American filmmaker and, at age 24, the youngest person ever to be nominated for the award.
