Black film presents an undeniable power expression. But there’s even more power behind the scenes. John P. Wheatley is a filmmaker & producer who’s worked with Gabrielle Union, T.I., Kirk Franklin, Janelle Monáe & countless others. In this episode he shares his insights on the “behind the scenes” power of Black film/production.
