NAACP Taps Vic Bulluck to Head Hollywood Bureau

Petrosino, Frankie J., The New Crisis

The NAACP has tapped an entertainment industry veteran to head its Hollywood Bureau.

On Sep. 18, the organization announced that Vicangelo Bulluck, an independent producer, would serve as executive director of the Los Angeles office and supervise production of the annual NAACP Image Awards ceremony.

"Vic Bulluck is uniquely qualified to direct and coordinate NAACP directives in the entertainment arena," said NAACP President and CEO Kweisi Mfume in a statement.

In his 15 years as an independent producer, Bulluck has worked on a wide variety of television and film projects, from the courtroom reality series The Judge Greg Mathis Show to the documentary Alex Haley: An American Griot to awards shows for Essence magazine and the Apollo theater's It's Showtime. He has been a producer of the Image Awards since its first national broadcast in 1986.

The Hollywood bureau serves as the association's headquarters for addressing issues of minority representation in creative and technical positions in entertainment and lobbying and negotiating with industry officials to expand opportunities for people of color.

Awareness of minority under-representation is almost second nature for Bulluck, who has spent much of his career developing what he describes as "culturally diverse programming." Bulluck recalls that even as a child, he noticed that "the world I'd go to and see in the movies did not feel like the world I lived in."

As early as the sixth grade he had an interest in the arts. Bulluck made short films in high school and pursued an interdisciplinary major in film, theater, philosophy and journalism at the University of Southern California.
