Every day of my life I walk with the idea I am black no matter how successful I am.

I was able to do To Sleep with Anger, a very powerful film about African Americans their spirituality, and the things that happened within a small community and a family.

I never thought about being an actor.

I've been a Goodwill Ambassador for the UNICEF and the UNICEF family for more than twelve years.
