Kwame Kwei-Armah on Hollywood Shuffle

When Kwame Kwei-Armah first saw Hollywood Shuffle he was astounded by Robert Townsend’s decision to step behind the camera, finance and create his own films at a time when black acting talent was not embraced in Hollywood. Kwame Kwei-Armah also talks about his own role models, such as Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X.

Kwame Kwei-Armah was speaking at a screening of Hollywood Shuffle shown courtesy of BFI Screen Epiphanies in partnership with American Express®.
