Len here - I honestly was introduced to his story via Vince's pick of 'MICHEAUX MISSION' as the name for the podcast. But learning about his fight for creative freedom and Independence have me a better appreciation of those that followed on his wake, like Spike Lee, Maya Angelou and others. That through line made me want to revisit this art and give it it's just due critically and culturally.
Plus, I hadn't seen most of it. What better way to do it than for a podcast. The discipline of the weekly schedule keeps me honest, on task and diligent.
