Poetic Justice: Filmmaking South Central Style
At twenty-four John Singleton became the youngest filmmaker and only African American ever to be nominated for Best Director (and Best Screenplay) for Boyz N the Hood, his debut feature film. Only a year after receiving such sensational acclaim for that debut, Singleton has returned to the Hood. His new film, Poetic Justice, which stars Janet Jackson and features the poetry of Maya Angelou, gives voice to young African-American women.
