Charlz Williams
Actor Charlz Williams helps shed some light on black on black discrimination in the new dramatic short “Throw the Dog a Bone.”

The film is screening on February 14th & 16 as part of the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles and I recently caught up with Charlz to find out more.

Tell us about your role in “Throw the Dog a Bone.”

CHARLZ: I play the role of a college professor at an Ivy League institution who has been assigned as the faculty adviser to a your African-American coed who is being accused of cheating to gain admission into the college. It becomes clear from the start that I am opinionated and do not like her because I angrily refer to her as, "You people". I then go about trying to make life on campus difficult for her because I want her to "Quit and go home".

What would you consider your characters ‘best’ quality? And their ‘worst’?

CHARLZ: My character best quality is that he is committed to something even through his thinking is not in alignment with those around him.
