Meeting David Wilson is a 2008 American documentary film. It is a 90-minute video produced for initial presentation on the MSNBC cable channel. Its focus is the encounter between David A. Wilson, a black American filmmaker who grew up in Newark, New Jersey, and David B. Wilson, a descendant of a white American tobacco-plantation owner who had owned some of the black Wilsons’ ancestors as slaves. The film was directed by Daniel Woolsey and David A. Wilson and produced by Barion Grant.

The Wilsons and Barion founded an African-American News website at NBC News entitled The Grio.
