Who is Mike Sargent?

"Skill, knowledge, presence and social responsibility are requisites for a great radio/ TV presenter and personality. These are found in abundance in Mike Sargent. Plus, he is very pleasant to work with. One of the best moderators we’ve ever had.”
 
Nora Armani
 Founding Artistic Director at Rated SR -Socially Relevant Film Festival New York
"Mike Sargent was fantastic as moderator for our multigenerational panel of African American filmmakers, which closed out the Birth of an Answer event. He energized the audience and our panelists and steered them through an honest but also irreverent conversation about the future of Black cinema and the challenges minority filmmakers face in telling stories that defy Hollywood's stereotypes (and getting those films distributed)."
