St. Clair Bourne (1943-2007) made 40 films focusing on black life & culture which were seen on TV & in festivals, including portraits of Paul Robseon, Langston Hughes, Gordon Parks & Amiri Baraka, as well as MAKING 'DO THE RIGHT THING'. He is the founder of the NYC community #BlackDocumentaryCollective as well as @BADWestLA -- his influence is wide!
