About the Guest

John Singleton is a film director, screenwriter, and producer best known for directing Boyz n the Hood (1991). For the film, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director, becoming the first African American and youngest person to have ever been nominated for the award. Singleton is a native of South Los Angeles and many of his early films, Higher Learning (1995) and Baby Boy (2001), consider the implications of inner-city violence. Some of his other films include Rosewood (1997), Shaft (2000), 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003), and Four Brothers (2005). Singleton recently created the crime drama series Rebel for BET and co-created Snowfall for FX. Singleton is also the Executive Director of L.A. Burning: The Riots 25 Years Later, which airs on the A&E network on Tuesday, April 18th. He graduated from USC's School of Cinematic Arts filmic writing program in 1990 and during that time was a member of an earlier iteration of the Diversity Council.
