Legendary Director John Singleton Had A Stroke

John Singleton, the first black filmmaker ever nominated for the Best Director Oscar, has reportedly suffered a “mild” stroke, according to Deadline.

Singleton burst onto the scene with 1991’s Boyz N The Hood, a moving, heartbreaking portrait of young people struggling to get by in the low-income South Central neighborhood of Los Angeles.

The drama helped make a star out of Cuba Gooding Jr., who played college-bound protagonist Tre, and marked the first acting credit for Ice Cube, who received accolades for his turn as tough but secretly sensitive gang member Doughboy.

At the following year’s Academy Awards, Singleton was nominated for both Best Director and Best Screenplay.
