40 years is a long time to do anything. From being married to living in one place, doing anything for as long as that is impressive — and acting is no exception. While there are a handful of actors and actresses that have managed to stay in the industry for that long, one of the most influential is Danny Glover.

Glover was born on July 22, 1946 in San Francisco. Both of his parents worked for the post office and they were activists for the NAACP. When the time for college came around Glover attended San Francisco State University, but he didn’t graduate. Instead, he’d go on to work in city administration before going into theater.

WOKE

By HF

What is WOKE in this day and age
Is it simply activism only from a social media page?
Is it an afro and a pick?

Is it Nat Turner’s unspoken rage?
An Angela Davis gaze
