Hey guys, I attended an very special event that featured the unveiling of the Oscar Micheaux Stamp. If you dont know, Oscar Micheaux was a filmmaking pioneer who wrote, directed, produced and distributed more than 40 movies during the first half of the 20th Century. Ambitious, larger than life figure, Micheauz thrived at a time when African American filmmakers were rare, venues for their work were scarce and support from the industry did not exist. Micheaux’ entrepreneurial spirit and independent vision continue to inspire new generations of filmmakers and artists.
I for one was very excited and honored to be at this event. It is an inspiration to me and helps me to get through the rough times. This African American King was true to his creativity and followed his heart no matter what others said. Let this be a great lesson to all of us; LIVE YOUR DREAMS! BE WHAT GOD INTENDED YOU TO BE!
