Black Hollywood live hostess Nakia Richardson interviews Rev. White and Attorney Carol Powell Lexing today on conversations.
ABOUT REVEREND VICTOR WHITE (Father of Victor White III): Victor White Sr. is the Pastor of Harmony Missionary Baptist Church in Alexandria, Louisiana. With a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice, Master of Arts in Student Personnel Service and a License in Addiction Counseling, Rev. White labors tirelessly in helping the downtrodden. He shares his life story, one of hope, pain, and humility, to show how he overcame alcoholism and drug addiction to inspire others. Married to Vanessa White with nine children, White fosters a passion for spending time with family, as he regards this as the greatest highlights of his life. Tragically, following the suspicious death of his youngest son, Victor White III, while in police custody, Rev. White has taken on the role of also being a New Iberia community activist and civil rights activist across the country to raise awareness and funds for independent investigations regarding police brutality.
ABOUT CAROL POWELL LEXING (Civil Rights Attorney): Named by Congress as one of the leading Civil Rights Attorneys of the 21st Century, Carol D. Powell Lexing has litigated many high-profile cases such as Jena 6, Baron “Scooter” Pikes, Victor White III’s “Houdini Handcuff Case” and Cameron Tillman Case. On May 19, 2014, she won a United States Supreme Court victory in the Baron Pikes case—the first case the U.S. Supreme Court ever heard regarding the use of a Taser.
