An accomplished, Emmy Award winning actor, musician, filmmaker and educator, he is now using his voice to focus on Uniting the Divide and sharing how, in his own life, he created and compelled the change he wished to see. He talks about overcoming the racial divide in multiple ways using his creativity and talent, and now offers a path forward for those who want to do something to create unity and connection.
