Walter Mosley on John Singleton: ‘We were brothers’
“Devil in a Blue Dress” author Walter Mosley was honored Wednesday at the BAM Gala, and revealed his award was meant to be presented by “Boyz n the Hood” director John Singleton. But Singleton died April 28.
The duo worked together on the FX series “Snowfall.”
“We were friends, of course, but more than that, we were brothers,” Mosley said, recalling Singleton “had a sailboat that he’d ride out past the California coast and watch whales singing and storms forming.”
Staceyann Chin delivered the honor.
Bobby Cannavale presented to Ethan Hawke, and Neneh Cherry performed.
The arty event raised $1.8 million.
An after-party featured neon-clad dancers, plus gourmet Pop-Tarts.
