Personal Quote:

And my mother said they have never ever had a black writer in Hollywood. If they ever get one he's going to be some high-yellow black with a Harvard degree, not some high school dropout from Cabrini. I said Momma, I'm going to do this. A week later, I left with $5 and a suitcase, went out to Route 66, hitchhiked my way to Hollywood, and I had never written a word. See more »

Trivia:

According to Eric Monte, it was his long-time friend Mike Evans, who he went to community college with, who gave him his big start in writing while Evans was guest starring on All In The Family. Soon afterwards, Mike Evans and Eric Monte would create a critically acclaimed sitcom called Good Times. See more »
