THE BLACK LIST: VOL. 1 is the first in a series of documentaries produced as part of "The Black List Project," which has reclaimed the term "black list" and redefined it to mean "an assembly of short stories about race, struggle, and achievement." The film features excerpts from 21 interviews with notable African-American writers, performers, athletes, activists, and community leaders, including former Guns n' Roses guitarist Slash, tennis champion Serena Williams, former Negro League Baseball star Mahlon Duckett, Civil Rights activist Vernon Jordan, actor/mogul Sean Combs, comedian Chris Rock, Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison, and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Colin Powell. The interviewees share thoughts and personal stories that reflect what being black means to them -- and how their race impacts their overall lives. They also talk about the role that their families, ancestors, and mentors have had in their attempts to succeed in a predominantly white Western culture.
