    It's All About the Fist Bump

    in Entertainment

    I have spent the past two years -- off and on -- teaching Shakespeare to adjudicated youth here in the city of Detroit. I don't talk much about it, so I thought I would share a little bit about what has been an incredible experience. 


    My students are amazing! We just finished our latest semester last weekend. This semester was different than previous semesters as my life has become more intentional in the past 18 months. I know my purpose. I always knew I wanted to share my art, but I didn't know exactly what that art looked like. I have been a writer. I have been an actor. I have been a comedian. Finding Shakespeare in Detroit has changed every aspect of my life. And, so, this semester it was very important for me to know and feel that I was making a real impact as a teacher. Sometimes, evidence of your success doesn't come in the form of some loud, elaborate declaration. There are times, when figuring out if you are doing the right thing or not can be as quiet and subtle as a fist bump. 


    I hope you'll check out the latest episode of Detroit Meets the Bard!

Naked in the moonlight, she whispered his name…“ They thought it was over. The werewolves Joan, Consuela, José and Mark, fought to save Tundra. Now they sit on Topaz’s High Council where they’re feeding the hungry, tackling race riots, rebuilding their world. But a daemon walks their streets by night. He knows about the little girl with the big secret. He knows all about her mirror and of the ancient evil that’s been awakened. A new war has just begun.
