Alvina August, Your Gift Will Make Room For You

Actor Alvina August was born and raised in Zimbabwe. A strained relationship with her father led her and her mother to Canada prior to her attending University, on a path to being a doctor. But as life as a doctor came closer to being a reality, something within her balked. A powerful singer, her friend submitted a tape to Canadian Idol and she was one of five Canadians selected to audition. That went no further, but the realization that a life in the Arts was a possibility planted the seeds for what has eventually followed: she is a regular fixture on television who can currently be seen on NBC's Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist, exhibiting the pipes that got her there. Being mixed race, she weighs in on the challenges of differing skin color and moving halfway across the world only to realize that her biggest journey is the one to discover herself.It is not the critic who counts.

Art Williams, Influencing with Dopeness in the Black Community

When you're as stylish and classy as Art Williams, you can get away with an Instagram handle like @thedopeinfluencer. But survival was the only thing on Art's mind in the first twelve years of his life. Well, survival, football and, eventually barbershops. Now a staple in Portland's black community, Art is not only the owner of a successful barbershop that is extensively involved in charities and programs that help minorities level up, he does double duty as the personal barber to former 10,000 NOs podcast guest, Actor Aldis Hodge. A former professional football player, Art travels back and forth from far-off sets not allowing them to prevent him from being a major influence of stability in a formerly challenged community. When he's not busy cutting hair, he is constantly inspiring others to exceed the expectations of their given circumstances the way he did.It is not the critic who counts.
