Kameron McQueen graduates from Union/KU football into filmmaking and shows his beloved city of Tulsa something it must see
Our young have contributed the strongest initiative and perspective to our racial reckoning over the past year. In many cases our young athletes have.
Kameron McQueen, born and raised in Tulsa, having played football on Tre Brown’s and Shamari Brooks’ Union teams and at Tyler Lockett’s youth camps before becoming an Academic All-Big 12 Conference contributor at Kansas, must be recognized for his initiative.
The 23-year-old McQueen must be recognized because he cares enough about his city, about understanding and justice within his city, to apply his passion to it.
“I’m an aspiring filmmaker,” McQueen says. “I can remember going to see ‘The Dark Knight’ in 2008. A connection was made. Sparks were in the air. I became a student of film right then, fell in love with the craft and fell in love with storytelling.”
