Al Freeman, Jr.: A New York actor

  Mr. Freeman spent years on One Life to Live. He won an Emmy on it. He directed episodes of the show.

He blew me away Off Broadway and on Broadway. His depictions of Elijah Muhammed raised ghosts and breathed life into dry bones. I loved him because he was an alum of the Negro Ensemble Company where he did amazing work.

 

From the soaps to Spike Lee, experimental to genre, stage to film to tube, Al Freeman, Jr. earned one of the highest accolades for a thespian, he was a New York actor.
