Dwight Williams is an assistant director and award-winning producer, known for his work on: A Soldier's Story, Krush Grove, Beat Street, Lean on Me, New Jack City, Dead Presidents, Eddie Murphy: Raw, Rosewood, Friday, Jason's Lyric, Baby Boy, Hustle & Flow, Something New, Girl's Trip and many more over his 40+ years in film. This time we will start with reflecting on the film, Rosewood. "John Singleton's "Rosewood'' re-creates the story of a shameful event in American history, the race riot by whites against blacks in 1922 in the small Florida town of Rosewood, which left the town in smoking ruin while dozens of its residents were shot, burned to death or lynched. But if the movie were simply the story of this event, it would be no more than a sad record. What makes it more is the way it shows how racism breeds and feeds, and is taught by father to son." -Roger Ebert, 1997 Learn more about Dwight Williams and see his acceptance speech at:https://www.dga.org/News/Guild-News/2018/Jan2018/70thAwrds_WilliamsCapra.aspx

Award-Winning DGA Producer and my Dad Dwight Williams on The E-Spot with Camille

"A DGA member for nearly 50 years, Williams’s dedication to a life of service and integrity goes back even farther. As a young man from Philadelphia, he was active in civil rights and fair housing campaigns in the North, then took two years off from college to work in the South doing voter registration and community organizing with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. After being arrested at a protest against the Vietnam War, he found himself incarcerated in Atlanta, Georgia. Facing a three-month sentence; Williams began to seriously contemplate his future.  “I was part of that generation that wasn’t so much about ‘me’ but about ‘us.’ While sitting there in jail, I thought about the things I wanted to do and what I didn’t want to do with my life,” Williams recalls. “When we were working in the South, we’d create comic books and flyers to teach about government, and sometimes we showed films to motivate people. I realized that film was the perfect vehicle to reach people and change their reality and from that, the world. So I decided I wanted to learn how to make them.”

Fortunately, for Williams, their lawyers sued the jail for being segregated and instead of letting the case go forward to the courts, the charges were dismissed. He later returned to college where he studied radio television and film at Temple University. It was there that he had his first brush with the Guild after hearing about the DGA Assistant Directors Training Program.  “It was 1969 and I had never heard of the Program before. I was going to try to work in a camera store or film laboratory to break into the business. The Training Program opened up a whole new world for me. I ended up working on movies with great directors and powerful stories like Alan J. Pakula’s Klute and William Friedkin’s The French Connection. And I was so desperate to learn everything about filmmaking that I would come in early and stay late to glean everything I could.”  Once he graduated the program and became a member of the Guild in 1971, Williams started to became more involved. On the advice of 1991 Aldrich Award recipient Milt Felsen, Williams started serving on various committees in New York and quickly realizing the advantages of doing so. “You would not only make a contribution but you’d also meet people you wanted to work with. In those days there was only one 2nd AD on a project and we worked some horrendous hours. We started pushing for a way to improve working conditions and eventually the DGA negotiated contract terms favorable to the hiring of two 2nd ADs on shows.”

The Three Languages- read by Dwight Williams

A count's son could learn nothing. The count sent him to find a master who could teach him something. One year, he came back saying he knew what dogs said when they barked; the next, what birds said; the third, what frogs said. Infuriated by his uselessness, his father drove him out. He was offered a night's shelter in a tower, but warned that wild dogs barked and howled there, and every night ate a man. He went and came back, saying that the dogs were there to guard a treasure until it was taken, and they had told him how to take it. The lord of the castle asked him to do it, and he came out with a chest of gold, and the lord adopted him as a son. He went to Rome. On the way, listening to frogs made him thoughtful. In Rome, the Pope had died, and they could not choose his successor, and were looking for some marvelous sign. Two doves descended on him, and they chose him as Pope — as the frogs had foretold. The doves persuaded him, and he had to sing Mass, but the doves whispered how to do it in his ear.
