Loren was a teacher’s aide at a San Francisco middle school where I was a Resource Specialist. I always found him very intelligent and knowledgeable about race issues and current events. I chose him because I found him very forthright and genuine. During the filming, he surprised me by his moving stories and insights. He was an important contrast to Victor and, to me, equally effective and memorable. I will always remember his Appalachian speech and the one about having to still shuffle in corporate America.
