Olu Gittens interviews filmmaker Sharon La Cruise for NBC’s TheGrio.com

Sharon La Cruise, filmmaker of ‘Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock’

I had the pleasure of interviewing documetary filmmaker/journalist Sharon La Cruise about her film Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock for video-centric news portal TheGrio.com. A venture of NBC News and the production team behind documentary film Meeting David Wilson, TheGrio.com features breaking news, politics, health, business, and entertainment, which concern African-Americans.

It was great to find out about La Cruise’s seven-year journey to making this powerful, intimate portrait of Civil Rights pioneer Bates.
