“Blueprint,” Charles D. King

Charles D. King made history as he rose from the mailroom of William Morris agency to its first African-American partner, spearheading the careers of everyone from Oprah and Tyler Perry to Missy Elliott and Janet Jackson. Here, he chronicles how he left WME to launch Macro, a multicultural media company responsible for Fences, one of 2016’s biggest films.

I was happy to serve as editorial producer for the Complex Original series Blueprint and tell the story of one of my industry heroes.
