“Carell Augustus is a genius.” ―Karamo Brown

A visionary photography book that brings together the best of classic Hollywood with today’s iconic Black entertainers for an immersive experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

Features a foreword by Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker and an afterword by beloved entertainer Niecy Nash!

Black Hollywood is a groundbreaking reimagining of Hollywood’s most beloved films, including Breakfast at Tiffany’sSingin’ in the RainMission: ImpossibleForrest Gump, and more. Visionary photographer Carell Augustus has created a “who’s who” of today’s Black entertainers recreating iconic cinematic scenes, renewing readers’ appreciation of the past while asking questions about representation in media and inspiring the artists of the future.

Compiled over the course of more than ten years and highlighting more than sixty-five stars such as Vanessa L. Williams, Dulé Hill, Karamo Brown, Shermar Moore, and others, Carell Augustus says, “Black Hollywood is not just a book for Black people―it’s a book for all people about Black people. About the dreams we were never told we could achieve. About the places we were never told we could go. And now, finally, about how we can get there.”
