When it comes to Black tv & film, there's often a conversation of who is allowed to tell what stories. Can Black folks from the UK tell stories about Black americans? Can Black folks with privilege tell stories about folks growing up in the hood? Can straight folks tell stories about queer Black folks?
This week I talked to actor, founder of Rise and Thrive, and performance based transformation coach Tom Williamson. You may know Tom from The Fosters, VFW, Running Wild and All Cheerleaders Must Die. We talked about his life growing up in DC, becoming an actor, and his experience at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. We talk about about Tom's experience navigating some of these issues as an actor and what it's like to prepare for a role that you personally don't identify with on the surface.
Tune in now!
To keep up with Tom and his moves, follow him on IG.
