Roger Ross Williams’ Work Is Personal

Episode 6103 | 18m 47s

The film industry is still falling short on diverse representation, both onscreen and off-screen. According to UCLA's latest report, only 16% of last year's top Hollywood releases were directed by people of color. Roger Ross Williams was the first African American director to win an Oscar. He now has a collection of Emmy and Peabody awards to his credit, but his journey has been an uphill battle.
