Join us for an evening and dinner with Ernie Hudson at our 10th Annual Angels of Destiny!
Ernie Hudson is one of the most sought-after actors of our time and has an impressive list of credits and awards. His body of work has a diverse range, including Ghostbusters 1 and 2, TV’s Law and Order and Grace and Frankie, HBO’s award winning series Oz, and the acclaimed movies The Crow and Miss Congeniality 1 and 2, starring Sandra Bullock.
His road to fame, however, had its share of hardships. In his early years, Hudson was born in poverty and raised in the housing projects of Benton Harbor, Michigan, in a time when civil rights had a long road ahead. The odds were more in favor of Hudson spending a life in prison than having a successful life in Hollywood. Whether it was reconciling the loss of his mother and the absence of a father, gaining the reputation of being the toughest kid in school, serving in the Marine Corps, attending Yale, raising his sons as a single father or overcoming racism in the entertainment industry, Hudson was always supported first and foremost by his grandmother, who taught him patience and graciousness.
The wisdom Hudson gained before his Hollywood days allows him to relate to struggling individuals and communities. He understands the challenges of overcoming seemingly insurmountable problems and inspires others to always persevere.
Hudson’s persistence has had him working in the film industry for over four decades. With such a resume, he can entertain audiences with stories of his humble beginnings, his Hollywood ups and downs, and the lessons he has learned. Ernie will share the secrets of how to get out of the box of limitation and land dream roles, not just on the stage or screen, but roles important to everyday life.
