Black Hollywood Center to Honor Renowned Director Michael Schultz

The Black Hollywood Education and Resource Center announced it will honor TV and film director Michael Schultz of “Cooley High” fame during its upcoming 26th annual African American Film Marketplace and S.E. Manly Short Film Showcase.

The tribute to Schultz will take place online Saturday on bherc.tv as part of the annual festival, which runs from Oct. 23 through Nov. 29. Schultz will be honored in commemoration of the 45th anniversary of his groundbreaking film “Cooley High,” the center said in a press release.

Hosted by veteran actor William Allen Young, the special event will pay tribute to the impact Schultz has had in stage, television and film, beginning with “Cooley High,” a comedic drama about a group of high school friends.

Schultz also helmed well-known films such as “Car Wash,” “Black Lightning,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and “The Last Dragon.”
