The 12th Annual AAFCA Awards to be Held on April 7 | Festivals and awards

“Serving an all-black production crew, ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’ director Shaka King created a project that permanently enshrines Black Panther frontman Fred Hampton as an American hero. Released in the context of the current Black Lives Matter movement, the film’s message of commitment and sacrifice for social justice empowers, “said AAFCA President / Co-Founder Gil Robertson.” Daniel Kaluuya, in the role de Hampton, is literally on fire and is well supported by Dominique Fishback who has increasingly become an actress to watch. Our members are delighted to award the film our highest honor. “
