The power of movies is not limited to what we see in theaters. Black writers have been making their mark in made-for-television movies for years. Paris Qualles, who has also written for various series, was the scribe behind “The Ditchdigger’s Daughters,” “The Color of Friendship,” “The Tuskegee Airmen” starring Laurence Fishburne, “The Rosa Parks Story” starring Angela Bassett, and most recently the “Raisin in the Sun” adaptation starring Sean “P Diddy” Combs.
