His ability to put together ensemble casts and introduce new stars. From jumpstarting the careers of actors like Cuba Gooding Jr., Nia Long and Regina King to directing Hollywood heavyweights like Paul Walker, Samuel L. Jackson and Mark Whalberg. He's done it all. He's helped contribute to the legacy of the Fast and Furious franchise, he introduced Shaft to a new generation of moviegoers and held up the mirror and shown America it's ugly reflection both past and present. Aside from Spike Lee, I can't think of another American director who has done more for Black Hollywood than John Singleton.
