You’ve probably seen S. Robert Morgan on the hit TV show The Wire, or in the Marvel Universe series Luke Cage. But what you don’t know about him is that he’s the founder and Artistic Director of The Essential Theater in Washington D.C. It’s mission is to use theater as a vehicle to express the African-American experience, and to educate youths about realities outside of theater. For example, teaching kids in D.C.’s economically depressed areas about managing their own finances, and how to achieve positive levels of self-esteem. S. Robert uses the power of story-telling to ignite the imaginations of young people, and he’s proven that drama can even be used as a form of psycho-therapy. Yeah… this conversation ran very deep. And I haven’t even gotten to the part about how he directs his own productions while being sight impaired. Seriously, are you ready to be blown away? Spend the next 25 minutes with S. Robert.
