SUNY Buffalo - It's not about getting it right; it's about getting it true. (2003)
[on director Israel Hicks]: So many actors, directors, and playwrights owe the start of their careers to him. Particularly those of color who saw him as a role model as well as a leading figure in the field. Israel Hicks was one of the best directors I ever worked with as an actors and there are a whole lot of people who feel the same way. When Israel called, we pretty much had to go.
