  1. So impressed with him! This is how you do it if you want your story told…you do it yourself. More black actors need to take that chance, but they’re too afraid of giving up their cushy lifestyles or being blacklisted.

  2. He is very smart it’s time to stop waiting for hollywood to open doors and start creating our own doors for opportunity.

  3. Imagine what this would do for the black community if more black celebrities invested in telling our stories. We’d be so powerful. There’s so much strength in proper representation in the media.
