Black’ish has become the modern-day Cosby Show. Throughout the show’s 7 year run, viewers have gotten to see each actor grow.
Black’ish is a show centered around a family man who struggles to gain a sense of cultural identity while raising his kids in a predominantly white, upper-middle-class neighborhood.
NAACP Image and BET Award-nominated actor, rapper, and dancer Miles Brown currently stars as the upbeat “Jack Johnson” in ABC’s Emmy-nominated and critically acclaimed comedy series BLACK-ISH, which will premiere its 7th season on October 21, 2020.
Last year he made his feature film debut in the independent coming-of-age film BOY GENIUS, starring alongside Rita Wilson and Nora Dunn. Next up for Miles is the release of his debut album We The Future, which features artists including Slick Rick, Jidenna, MAJOR., and NBA’s Dame Dolla (Damian Lillard). Produced by Madlib, Mic Checkmate, and Deliv, the album is due out October 16th.
Most recently, Miles has been using his platform to amplify the need for change and show support for the BLM movement. He is also a member of the Jr. NBA Leadership Council, which is a select group of NBA/WNBA players, legends, coaches, and celebrities tasked with providing thought, leadership, and insight as it pertains to growing the Jr. NBA brand.
In anticipation of his upcoming album as well as the 7th season of Black’ish, I had the opportunity to interview Miles. I want to say that Miles is probably the youngest celeb I’ve ever interviewed. Despite his young age, you can tell that he has great parents rearing him in a positive direction. His poise, need to give back, and inspiring spirit that he’s providing for the future generation is what makes him a star!
