Two time Academy Award winner, Professor Russell Williams II, stops by to talk about going from being a kid from Southeast DC to two time Oscar and Emmy winner. As the first African American to win multiple Academy Awards in any category, his Oscars will be on display in the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Franklin, Senior Manager of the Office of External Affairs, NMAAHC, Smithsonian Institution talks with me about the history of bringing the museum to the nation, and what we can expect to see at the opening this weekend!

Kevin Sampson

The fact that Kevin Sampson is not just a film critic, but a writer, producer, and director as well makes his understanding of cinema even better. Coming from a theoretical and hands on approach, he understands both sides of the struggle of viewing and creating great works. After receiving an MFA in Film & Electronic Media from American University in Washington, D.C in 2011, Kevin took his love for film to the next level by creating and producing Picture Lock, an entertainment website, podcast, and hour long film review TV show that runs on Arlington Independent Media’s public access station in Arlington, VA. The show covers new releases, classic films, and interviews with local filmmakers in the DMV area. He is also a member of the Washington DC Area Film Critics Association and African American Film Critics Association. He is currently looking forward to filming his first feature film in the near future. He believes that film is one of the most powerful art forms in the world, and he hopes that he can use the craft to inspire others and make a difference in it.
