Some know Brian White from movies such as Stomp the Yard, Fighting, Mr. 3000 and Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All By Myself. Others know him from his co-starring roles on such TV shows as Men of a Certain Age and The Shield.
Actor, model and dancer Brian White is a Dartmouth-educated, former NFL drafted, former stock broker and present youth advocate. It's nice to know that there are still prominent figures in television and film who are actively concerned with positively shaping the perception of African-Americans in media. In fact, these are the types of individuals we should be uplifting in our African-American community as well as highlighting their work in it.
These days White is starring alongside Destiny Child's Michelle Williams in the nationally touring stage play, David E. Talbert Presents, What My Husband Doesn't Know . I sat down with him via Skype and got his thoughts on his latest venture, his foundation the Phunk Phenomenon Urban Dance Theater and the music in heavy rotation on his iPod.
