Remembering Michael Kenneth Williams

Michael Kenneth Williams was an extraordinary artist, adept at bringing characters like Omar Little, Chalky White, and Montrose Freeman into vivid color. A beloved member of the HBO family for more than 20 years, Williams is remembered not only as an immensely talented actor, but as a civil justice advocate. He will be profoundly missed.

Actors from The Wire, Lovecraft Country, and Boardwalk Empire pay tribute to the late Michael Kenneth Williams.
