Al Freeman, Jr., 78

 

As my friend Emory just said: “One of our best. Ever.”

To me he symbolized the future for African American actors — or so we all thought — serious roles, serious subjects, a range of characters to be inhabited. Who knew that that would only be a moment — a blink really.

This one really makes me sad.
