Trivia:

When no major film distribution company would distribute his film Sankofa (1993), he literally took his film to thirty-five different cities--one at a time--and ended up grossing nearly US$3 million; his company Mypheduh Films was created to distribute his films on all media and the films of other Black filmmakers who have difficulty finding distributors.
