John Singleton’s impact is still being felt and celebrated in Los Angeles. So much so that the city of LA just named May 21st as John Singleton Day!! This is amazing. Los Angeles City Council President Herb J. Wesson Jr. is set to honor John at his alma mater the University of Southern California. Herb J. Wesson Jr. released a statement:

There is not enough that can be said about John Singleton and the profound impact he made in his 51 years of life. In a time and in an industry where all the odds were stacked against him, John overcame and became the best at his craft.

Now in Los Angeles this day is a time to celebrate John and his legacy. It’s far sooner than we should have to, but there is so much to celebrate.”
