**AMEER BARAKA IS APPEARING ON THURSDAY, JULY 4 FROM 11:20 - 11:50 AM**
11:20 - 11:50 AM

Actor/producer Ameer Baraka has achieved acclaim in HBO’s “Treme,” set in his native New Orleans and alongside Academy Award-Winner Forrest Whitaker in “My Own Love Song.” His incredible story of ascendancy from juvenile delinquency to prominence has inspired Oprah Winfrey to feature him on her “Blackboard Wars” program for his devotion to mentoring at-risk youth. A former dyslexia himself, Baraka is a spokesperson for La Key Academy.
