Diversity Trainer, Universal Life Minister
Many folks have wondered how I came about choosing Victor. Actually, I bumped into him at a store and asked him if he wanted to be in the film. I really had no one in particular in mind, other than Loren Moye. I first learned about Victor when I read an article about urban racism that Victor had written, and I was taken by his clarity and passion.
During my visits with Harrison Simms, the Director of the Oakland Men’s Project, I had an opportunity to watch Victor presenting a series of diversity exercises. He struck me as very charismatic and knowledgeable about race issues. I chose him, very much like Hugh, for his diversity training experience and for the passion he might bring to the film. Obviously, he exceeded my expectations. His speech about what it is like to a black man in America and the spikes in the road are forever etched in our hearts because it boldly describes our daily experiences as folks of color and the reality of the two Americas.
