AAFCA co-founder and CEO, Gil Robertson

“The passing of both Little Richard and Andre Harrell on the same day is a huge blow to
American culture. Both innovators and pioneers, Little Richard and Andre Harrell elevated and
pushed pop culture forward. Both men helped redefine American culture by putting their own
stamp on it. And, though they are gone today, their imprints live forever. We are profoundly
grateful for their gifts and contributions and will keep their family in our thoughts and prayers.”
– Gil Robertson, President, African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA)
