The same program from which the shooting victim recently graduated. Actor Pierre Walters's epic portrayal of Glenn as a no-nonsense instructor trying vehemently to help his students better themselves and overcome perceptions and stereotypes blends seamlessly as he becomes the voice of his community - a voice desperately needed after experiencing decades of racial inequality.
