    Book Author

    Commentator on Racial Issues in the U.S.

     

    I am a documentary producer, writer, professor, manager of a 501(c)3 non-profit production company, and a world citizen.

    Along with the team of Jelani Cobb, correspondent, and Tom Jennings, producer, I was honored to win a 2021 Peabody for best documentary. In 2017, I was nominated for an Emmy for my independent film, "Wilhemina's War." Wilhemina Dixon has five relatives living with HIV/AIDS. I shot the film over five years in rural South Carolina. It aired on PBS' Independent lens in Feb. 2016. www.pbs.org/independentlens/films/wilheminas-war

    Previous docs: "Secret Daughter" "The Old Man and the Storm," "This Far by Faith" "Two Nations of Black America" (with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.)

    I have written a memoir, Secret Daughter, published in 2006 by Viking (paperback in 2007).

    My goal is to amplify the stories of those whose voices too often go unheard.

    Specialties: REAL reality television
