Marc Lamont Hill's ex dream hampton is set to direct a series about the Tulsa Race Massacre, an act of racial violence that occurred nearly 100 years ago.
The 49-year-old writer/filmmaker who stylizes her name in all lower caps, says the time is right for such a compelling series about race relations in America.
Hampton, pictured below with activist Tarana Burke, says she's inspired by the persistence of Black people from Tulsa.

"Black people from Tulsa have refused to let the Greenwood District Massacre be erased from history. I'm so inspired by their persistence to lift up the stories of what North Tulsa was before the massacre," hampton said in a statement on Monday about the burning of Tulsa's Greenwood District, dubbed "Black Wall Street" for its collection of successful African American-owned businesses.
Over 300 Americans were killed and thousands more were displaced from their homes as the Greenwood District was torched by white supremacists.
"As the centennial approaches they are still searching for a mass grave they believe contains the bodies of the victims of the Black Wall Street Massacre, and they are still demanding reparations. I'm inspired to learn this history from them, and to tell their ongoing story," said hampton.
The award-winning filmmaker was once entangled in a love triangle with another woman for Marc Lamont Hill's affections.
Their squabble over a cheating man got so heated that the other woman emailed your auntie to put hampton on blast.
When your auntie did the responsible thing and reached out to hampton for her side of the story, she pleaded with me not to publish the woman's email because her minor daughter (at the time) was old enough to read the blogs.

Kevin Hart's long-suffering wife Eniko Parrish-Hart breaks down in a new trailer for his 6-part docu-series called "Don't F**k This Up!".
In the trailer, Eniko tries to shed a tear (no real tears fall) as she explains how her husband betrayed her while she was pregnant with their son in 2017.

"You publicly humiliated me," says Eniko, addressing him directly. "I just kept saying, 'How the f--k did you let that happen?'"

If you recall, Hart, 40, was filmed in a hotel room with model Montia Sabbag while on a business trip to Las Vegas in 2017.
If you believe Montia, the whole thing was a set up by Kevin and his co-conspirator, J.T. Jackson, to boost publicity for Kev's project at the time.
Montia sued Kevin for $60 million, claiming Kevin and J.T. hid a camera to film their rendezvous for their financial benefit.
Kevin didn't actually cheat on his wife if it was just a publicity stunt. But Kevin has a 6-part Netflix documentary that he needs to promote.

Eniko never got over the public humiliation of Kevin's alleged affair. Her body language tells the true story in every photo they take together.
But it was her tone of voice in a 911 phone call the night of Kevin's accident that reveals her underlying rage towards Kevin.
Who can forget Eniko telling the 911 dispatcher to "come get him" as Kevin lay unconscious, his back broken in three places. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
Linda Fairstein, the former New York prosecutor who racially profiled the so-called Central Park Five, says director Ava DuVernay concocted a "basket of lies" about her in the new Netflix Series "When They See Us."
