Following the same format as The Black List: Volume One and Volume Two, this month's documentary focuses on over a dozen prominent African Americans as they speak their minds about a wide range of influences and experiences in this intimate series of first-person video portraits. Introduced via simple IDs, the interviewees speak directly into the camera and share their insights into what it was like growing up black in America, how their backgrounds shaped their philosophies, and what they feel about a society where new opportunities abound, but discrimination still exists. Among the men and women profiled: Whoopi Goldberg, John Legend, Dr. Michael Lomax, Hill Harper, Beverly Johnson, Lee Daniels, LaTanya Richardson.
Credits: Interviews by Elvis Mitchell; Directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders; Producers: Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, Elvis Mitchell and Michael Slap Sloane; Executive Producers: Christopher McKee, Scott Richman, Tommy Walker and Payne Brown.
