The NAACP Image awards are a marvelous opportunity for underrepresented writers to receive some well deserved attention. Since I’m infatuated with all things TV Drama, I’m sharing the winners in a few of my most favorite categories. The haunting tale of the wrongfully convicted “central park five”, When They See Us took home the prize for Outstanding Television Movie, Limited-Series or Dramatic Special.
Fun fact: The actor Asasnte Blackk who was nominated for an Emmy award for his portrayal of the real life Kevin Richardson, trained as an actor under me at my summer camp for several years. I remember him as a fairly shy but incredibly focused young man and I’m so proud of him! Kudos to him and the entire team!
