DESCRIPTION:
Throughout the 2022–23 academic year, the USC School of Cinematic Arts, the USC African American Cinema Society, and USC Visions and Voices will host a series of screenings honoring the life and career of trailblazing filmmaker, iconic Angeleno, and USC alumnus, John Singleton (1968–2019). Screenings will take place at the USC School of Cinematic Arts and the David Geffen Theater at the Academy Museum, with conversations to follow featuring cast and crew.

Singleton’s fourth film is a historical drama set in Rosewood, a largely black community built on family, faith, and hard work in Levy County, Florida. On January 1, 1923, hopes for the new year come to an abrupt end when a white lynch mob begins a massacre and razes the town into oblivion. Amid the rampage, a heroic World War I veteran (Ving Rhames) and a shopkeeper (Jon Voight) join forces to lead dozens of women and children who have fled into nearby swamps to safety.
