They're artists, academics, athletes, activists, authors and more. Following last year's acclaimed NAACP Documentary Award winning HBO special "THE BLACK LIST: VOL 1.," a remarkable group of African-American notables share candid stories and revealing insights into the struggles, triumphs and joys of black life in the U.S. on the all-new THE BLACK LIST: VOL. 2. From the childhood inspirations that shaped their ambitions, to the evolving American landscape they helped define, to the importance of preserving a unique cultural identity for future generations, these prominent individuals offer a unique look into the zeitgeist of black America, redefining the traditional pejorative notion of a blacklist.
Featured in THE BLACK LIST: VOL. 2 are activist and artist Majora Carter; activist and academic Angela Davis; Producer Suzanne de Passe; Actor Laurence Fishburne; Anglican Bishop Barbara Harris; Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick; Pastor T.D. Jakes; physician and academic Valerie Montgomery-Rice, M.D.; Filmmaker Tyler Perry; Singer Charley Pride; Fashion Designer Patrick Robinson; Actress Maya Rudolph; Musician RZA; Filmmaker Melvin Van Peebles; and Artist Kara Walker. This new film is a collaboration between celebrated portrait photographer and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, who directs, and award-winning journalist Elvis Mitchell, who interviews a host of influential people.
