“There have always been black leaders in the sports arena. But with my children, I tell them that the real superheroes are people like Charles Drew, John Henrik Clarke, Imhotep.”

Dr. G is one of my closest friends and a co-producer on Raise Up.  He and I met in 2009 via Myspace when I reached out to him and the Bartendaz about the chance to collaborate on a PSA at Shaw University.  That video was the conception of the idea of this feature documentary that then took me around the world and is now coming out to the public.  In those six years, Dr. G and I have spent many nights talking about life over wine or bourbon.  This is one of those conversations.
