Mack Bates
Moviegoer Writer

At the ripe age of 12, award-winning writer and aspiring filmmaker Mack Bates announced that he wanted to be “the black Peter Jennings.” This followed his earlier desire to be an astronaut and a cowboy.

Journalism indeed beckoned, and Mack has written for a variety of publications and outlets since high school.
