My brother and mentee, actor, singer, model and now author Tyrese Gibson, speaking today at Clark Atlanta University on his new book, HOW TO GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY. It's a great book, and every young person I know should read it. He "unpacks" all of his life experiences -- good amd bad -- and lays them all out as an example to learn by, from and through. The book is very vulnerable and open, and left nothing out (and I know, as I have "been there" with him during most of this process called his life).
I am very proud of Tyrese,and I also believe that the best is yet to come. A special thank you to our friend Jeff Johnson who also joined him on stage. Both Tyrese and Jeff Johnson are 5MK Ambassadors for Operation HOPE and the 5 MILLION KIDS initiative.
A special thank you to my friend Dr. Beverly Tatum, president of Spelman College, for hosting Tyrese this evening.
