Event Details

Before Spike Lee, Henry Hampton, Stanley Nelson, St. Claire Bourne, and many other successful black documentary makers, there was Bill and Bill. Steeped in black history and culture, the work of these two pioneers laid a firm foundation for many of today's black filmmakers who continue a proud tradition of storytelling that began with Oscar Micheaux, Spencer Williams, and others.  Join us as we explore the work, legacy, and lives of Bill Miles and Bill Greaves. Co-presented by Firelight Media and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
