Stories That Matter: A Conversation with John Ridley

Ridley is joined by frequent collaborator, Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actress Felicity Huffman, in conversation about his trio of recent critically acclaimed projects: ABC’s Emmy Award-winning “American Crime,” Showtime’s “Guerrilla,” and his illuminating documentary Let it Fall, about the 1992 Los Angeles uprising.
