Taking on Hong Kong
Huffington Post - over 3 years
We've been looking forward to it all year. Episodes 15 and 16 of the wild Season 4 of Covert Affairs are being shot in -- Hong Kong. There'll be suspense, intrigue, love, betrayal, fights, foot chases, car chases, boat chases. There'll be blood, sweat and tears (and that's just the shoot). DAY 1. It's 6 a.m. in Hong Kong (or maybe it's 6 p.m. -- my body can't tell). The sun is pushing through the heavy mist (or smog). Cameras are being built. Cast and Crew are gathering in the street outside the infamous, breathtakingly distressed I-Pheng Apartments. We eschew the table of Mickey D's for the table of noodles, tea eggs and milk-tea (high-octane and tasty as hell) and then we pray on a beautiful altar with incense and fruit and flowers that has been set in a stunning alleyway. We pray for safety. We pray for peace. We pray for fun. And on this day, we pray that the crew of Transformers 4 hasn't taken over our rooftop. And so, our journey begins. For two weeks we make our way throu ...

Myrdith Leon Mccormack: Elise Neal, 1982 Actress, Shines on the Big Screen
Huffington Post - about 4 years
I'm a firm believer that knowledge is the key to successfully conquering life endeavor. I don't mean knowledge as far as just being familiar with the materials, laws and rules that govern our lives but mastering them to use the knowledge to work in your favor. As persons of color, of African descent, we were banned from getting a proper education. Of learning to read or even attending school. Our legal disenfranchisement has had an impact on individuals, communities -- and ultimately -- society at large. African Americans have fought and died to gain the right to education. Our ancestors struggled to have access to the same resources their constituents had the right, the luxury, to enjoy. Today, the struggle continues. Laws barring our enrollment in school no longer exist, but the lack of access to proper financial resources continues to be a challenge. This is the story I keep in the forefront of my life, my children's lives and every young person I mentor. It i ...

Myrdith Leon Mccormack: Hill Harper: Big Brother, Big Dreams
Huffington Post - about 4 years
For the first part of my life, I lived in Haiti. I remember some of that time, but it comes to me in spurts. What I remember most is the life we started here in America. Attending school, making friends and adjusting to a new culture were part of my growing process here. It came with so many liberties which were not prevalent in my native land; the freedom, the abundance of resources available to us -- food, education, material possessions. The opportunities were extraordinary. Yes, we faced hardship growing up in the '70s and '80s, with racial stereotyping, crime, drugs taking over certain neighborhoods. But, I still recall having a positive experiences and people in my life to guide me, either by choice, need or force, preventing me from going down the wrong path. Thank goodness for my mother's relentless passion, love, dedication and sense of responsibility. My sister, brother and I grew up to be dependable, socially conscious adults. Today, having my own children, I see ...

Huffington Post - over 4 years
Barack Hussein Obama. Mr. President, leader of the free world, husband, father, role model, first black president of the United States... However you want to label him, he has made an indelible mark in history. You don't have to like him, his ideals, morals or standards, but his current title has earned him a measure of respect that anyone in his position, past and future, is due. He is president. For me -- a mother, a woman of color -- and others like me, he is a symbol of hope. We can tell our children, especially our black boys and young black men, that they can be anything they want to be, if they put their mind to it and work hard. Do I want my sons to run for political office? Absolutely not. Do I want them to be strong, spiritual, responsible, law-abiding citizens, who are respected and make positive contributions in their communities? You better believe it. President Obama motivated a whole generation of young people to do things that they never imagined doing be ...
