From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Meeting David Wilson is a 90-minute video produced for initial presentation on the MSNBC cable channel. Its focus is the encounter between David A. Wilson, a black American filmmaker who grew up in Newark, New Jersey, and David B. Wilson, a descendant of a white American tobacco-plantation owner who had owned some of the black Wilson's ancestors as slaves. The film was directed by Daniel Woolsey and David A.

Dan, Dave, and Barion are currently starting up an African-American News website at NBC News entitled The Grio.
