He gave me some inspirational words a few years ago. His words were proven just yesterday by someone's comments to me on this page who I thought I was cool with....his exact words..."folks who you shake hands with aren't always the people returning the gesture. don't do stuff to prove them right or wrong because it doesn't matter you will always be wrong to them."I’ll never forget the excitement around “Boyz n the Hood”! To me, that movie was another major moment in African American history! I didn’t see a lot of his other movies, but I had a great love and appreciation for John Singleton for helping raise socioeconomic disproportion awareness in our communities.
I will miss him.
