BET hosted a screening of the critically-acclaimed drama Fences at Morehouse College on Wednesday, December 7, followed by a discussion of the film with lead actor/director Denzel Washington, as well as stars Mykelti Williamson, Stephen McKinley Henderson and Jovan Adepo.
Terrence J moderated the discussion, which started on Denzel's socks and continued on to more serious topics like the power of family, politics and the importance of community. If you didn't happen to be on the Morehouse campus today, don't fret. You can still watch the full discussion via Facebook Live, below.
Washington has a special connection to Morehouse because his son graduated from the HBCU, and the positive energy was palpable throughout the discussion. Trust us, you won't see this on any late night talk show or other platform. And, for good measure, the cast shares some wise words of advice to all the young folks in the audience that we can all take to heart.
