Hip Hop Film Festival NYC (HHFF) nominated Zangba Thomson’s “Three Black Boys” screenplay for their 2017 festival, held on August 3-6 in New York City.
Three Black Boys started out as a hip-hop song, then it evolved into a 100-page street mixbook before transforming into a 350-page novel.
Thomson chimed in on the evolution of Three Black Boys.
“The Creator blessed me with Three Black Boys. And I’ve been nurturing this book like how one would nurture a child,” said Thomson. “There’s no limit on what might happen next. Maybe, a film? A play? Or, I might release part 2.”
Also, 1010 WINS’ Sharon-Barnes Waters spoke with CR Capers, the founder & CEO of the Hip Hop Film Festival. And this is what she had to say about HHFF’s 2017 festival.

“1010 WINS is HHFF’s media partner for this year’s festival,” said Thomson. “But Ten-Ten Winz is also a character in Three Black Boys. So there’s no coincidence in life. This nomination was meant to be.”
