Photojournalist Steve Schapiro has passed away. He was important to the movement. He photographed the March on Washington and Selma to Montgomery march. His images moved minds during a crucial time. This is my favorite photo by him of Dr. King. May they both rest in peace now.

Ten years ago today, a jury with the great Lynn Shelton, Amy Vincent, Anthony Mackie, Justin Lin and Cliff Martinez gave me the Best Director Award at @sundancefest . Next day, I decided to leave my job to be a full-time filmmaker. The ten years has been beyond a dream. Beyond. 🙏🏾

This story chronicles a good brother named Gregory Everett, who I knew as “G-Bone.” He was a filmmaker and archivist. We lost him to Covid, but his story lives on. Thanks to @KCET  and @ShotOn35mm  for remembering him and his work.

I don’t think the @NFL  looked closely enough at the ad we submitted for the Super Bowl souvenir program. 🤭 Visit or to join the conversation about racial bias in sports, about resistance, about protest.

Imagine being able to do this. 👀

Did you know that in the mid-2000s Venus Williams battled Wimbledon for women to have equal prize money as male players? She even lobbied British Parliament. She won. In 2013, I made a doc about her quiet activism called VENUS VS. Think it’s on @hulu  now.

Eight directors. Four cameras. Many stories. Good laughs. #lastnight

BREAKING: UK’s Channel 4 has obtained a huge data leak from Trump’s 2016 campaign. The leak reveals personal data of almost 200 million voters used by Trump’s campaign, which manipulated algorithms to deter millions of Black Americans from voting.

Thank you to of and many others who identified the proud Native man who is being harassed. He is Mr. Nathan Phillips. I’m reposting this video from “ka_ya11” on IG. This man’s words pierce my heart. The grace. The wisdom. The hope.

The lone wolf. The local shooter. The gunman. Any and everything, but terrorist. Wonder why.

We can get mad at this. Tweet up a storm. Call him names. All those things. Or - we can do the only thing that really matters. Vote. Them. Out. November 6. Midterms. Diminish his power. Batter his ego. Raise your voice. Show them all who’s boss. Justice and dignity will prevail.

For those of you who think you know all about how things escalate during a protest.

Chilling. With all the Comey news, this badass slipped under the radar. Not too late to listen.

A heartbreaker. Next week’s @NewYorker  cover by the great @KadirNelson .

Basically half of all white folks. This is where we are. After all that we’ve been through. Whiteness over democracy. Whiteness over safety. Whiteness over justice. That is what these numbers mean. 49%. smh
