From The Mesa to Hollywood

A Conversation with P. Frank Williams, Emmy and Image Award Winning Producer & Director
April 23, 2021, 12:00PM

Join us for an incredible conversation with SDSU JMS Alum P. Frank Williams. From the Daily Aztec to Los Angeles, his career has spanned decades and he has become one of the most respected Hollywood insiders.

For Williams, it all began by writing love letters for his homies in the hood when he was barely a teen. Since then, Emmy and 8-time NAACP Image winner Williams has become a universally known and respected writer, speaker, teacher and producer. Most recently, he worked as a Co-Executive Producer at Critical Content producing the police brutality series Copwatch America for BET. Williams has been an EP at TMZ and was also a producer and co-host with civil rights attorney Ben Crump on the A&E Biography investigative series about Tupac Shakur called Who Killed Tupac?

Williams was formerly Executive Editor of The Source Magazine, where he wrote iconic cover stories about Suge Knight, Eazy-E, Tupac Shakur, Dr Dre and many more. And in the mid 1990’s, he was a staff writer at the Los Angeles.
