On this episode of People’s Party, Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh sit down with actress and writer Yvette Nicole Brown. They discuss her early dream of becoming a singer, which evolved into an acting career. Later, she talks about writing the movie “Always A Bridesmaid,” and valuable lessons she learned from Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino on the set of the hit show “Community.” Later, the trio discusses the idea of fame being a vapor and a trap that compromises the integrity of so many in the industry.
As the convo moves along, Yvette speaks on being a self-proclaimed “Blerd” and regular attendee of the Comic-Con conventions. The trio then goes on to discuss Trump-era politics, the importance of voting, ADOS, the lack of attention on immigration reform by progressives, and in closing Yvette gives some great advice to those seeking a career in Hollywood.
