After a day of incorrect news reports and corrections, a representative for filmmaker John Singleton has confirmed that the director, producer and screenwriter has died. He was 51 years old.
Rest in peace to a unique and groundbreaking creative who changed the filmmaking industry for the better with his vision of inclusion, dedication to reality, and insistence on being in control of the narrative when it comes to the stories of African-American lives, families, neighborhoods and communities. He made Hollywood better, and he'll always be remembered for it.
Thank you John Singleton!
