(Swipe for More!) #tarajitarajiiichallengept2 | Day 8: The First Movie/TV Show You Saw Taraji In 🎞
I remember I was about 10 or 11 years old and this movie came on tv. My mom said “Oooo! This is my movie!” 😂 I remember watching it and being captivated by Taraji’s talent. Of course I didn’t know just how much talent she truly had or how much impact her talent would have on me and the world. As I got older I started seeing her in more movies and on my tv a lot more(especially on BET 😂). I also saw that a Black Girl Could make it against the odds ❤️🙌🏾

Bro, whenever I accomplish a task at school or outside, I always scroll down to send you the news because that's what I always did. I then remember... it's something I can no longer do... and no more reading, " congrats lil sis" from you. You're always on mind. I would like to thank you for helping me create a much stronger sibling bond during the last three years. The talks that we had about Trojans vs. Bruins were priceless when in reality we knew who was better #bruins 😉. I would do anything to hear you say "lil sis" one last time as well as seeing your one sided smirk.😊 Rest easy bro... rest well. #johnsingleton#johnsingletonlegacy

There’s still time to get involved! @paffnow is hosting a short film competition. Check it out below!
———- Inspired by the legacy of the Los Angeles-born and legendary filmmaker, John Singleton, this short film competition is the result of a partnership between the City of Los Angeles and the Pan African Film Festival under the initiative of Los Angeles City Council President, Herb J. Wesson Jr.
As an extension of the City of Los Angeles’ embRACE L.A. initiative, this competition will deepen the program’s goal to engage a citywide conversation about race and racism while challenging and changing inequities. In honor of the cinematic achievements of John Singleton and his commitment to the South Los Angeles community, we celebrate his unapologetic approach to filmmaking that centralized Black characters in humanizing stories about the often-routine circumstances of individuals in society that were mostly ignored or exploited beyond the point of recognition.
It is our aim to encourage and ignite Black filmmakers who desire to continue that commitment in their creative approach by providing them with the financial resources to write, direct, and produce an original and innovative film that echoes the cultural contributions of Singleton’s cinematic catalogue.

Favourite quote: “I have what some people might call control issues. And I always have and since I was a kid, really, but the simple truth is that I can’t do everything alone. Do I have to empower the people that I choose to work with. See, it’s not just about being in charge. It’s about deciding how you wasn’t to be in charge. Look, you wanna walk out of here right now, that’s fine. I understand. I’ll keep taking your fives and your ones. I don’t care. It makes no difference to me. But what you have to decide is just how big you want your business to become. And how much control you are willing to cede to get there.” -Teddy McDonald
