The director John Singleton, the first African American filmmaker to receive a Best Director Oscar nomination, died Monday at age 51 after suffering a stroke earlier this month, his family confirmed to The Associated Press.

“We are sad to relay that John Singleton has died. John passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family and friends,” the family said Monday in a statement. “We want to thank the amazing doctors at Cedars-Sinai Hospital for their expert care and kindness and we again want [to] thank all of John’s fans, friends and colleagues for all of the love and support they showed him during this difficult time.”
