Co-filmmakers (L-R) Elvis Mitchell and Timothy Greenfield-Sanders attend a screening of "The Blacklist: Volume Three" at The Paley Center for Media on February 3, 2010 in New York City.
After the success of its first two specials, HBO will air 'The Black List: Volume 3' on Feb. 8 to celebrate Black History Month.
Like volumes 1 and 2, 'Volume 3' will profile some of today's most dynamic African Americans. From the childhood inspirations that shaped their ambitions to the evolving American landscape they helped define, these prominent individuals offer a unique look into the zeitgeist of black America, redefining the traditional pejorative notion of a blacklist.
The film is a collaboration between distinguished portrait photographer and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, who serves as the show's director, and award-winning journalist Elvis Mitchell, who interviews the subjects, which include Oscar-winning actress and TV host Whoopi Goldberg, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter John Legend, United Negro College Fund President Dr. Michael Lomax, actor Hill Harper, fashion model Beverly Johnson, CEO of BET Debra L. Lee, actor LaTanya Richardson and director-producer Lee Daniels.
