Shane Evans and Taye Diggs discuss their collaboration to create Chocolate Me.
Actor Taye Diggs along with fellow SU alum Shane Evans talked about their book Chocolate Me and did a reading at the Greater Evangelical COGIC last Sunday. The story, based on lessons Diggs mother gave him as a child, are a great antedote to low race esteem and self image.
In addition to the reading, Evans and Diggs did a musical performance (Evans on guitar, Diggs on beatbox) with crowd participation.
The event was sponsored by Say Yes to Education (Syracuse).
