Actor and activist Kendrick Sampson (Insecure) is learning to dream without limiting himself. Kendrick and Ashley revisit who they were as audacious young adults when they first met at the American Black Film Festival in 2008. The Houston native says growing up he wasn’t taught to embrace his Southern culture, and that having a Black father and white mother often left him feeling like he lived in a ‘gray area.’ However, as an adult, a passion for storytelling and social justice helped him reconnect to his identity and heal. Watching his mother dedicate 37 years to a company that did not appreciate her taught Kendrick the importance of chasing one’s purpose. Now, after seasons of doubt in himself, Kendrick is fully committed to seeing his dreams realized on and off the screen.
