Duke recently received a Lifetime Achievement Tribute from the Directors Guild of America as he joined the ranks of directors Stephen Spielberg, Alfred Hitchcock, and Clint Eastwood.


But what makes Bill Duke stand out from these other directors is the fact that he is a director who like Michael Shultz and Gorden Parks paved the way for African Americans in cinema beginning in the early 1970's.


He is the founder and CEO of Duke Media, formerly Yagya Productions, which has been successfully producing film and television for over 30 years
