Actor Roger Guenveur Smith Honored By Board of Supervisors

Actor and Leimert Park native Roger Guenveur Smith was honored by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Tuesday, May 10 for his dramatic work that is often informed by his roots in African American Los Angeles.

Smith, who is also a writer and director, is performing in a new show opening May 19 at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City. “Juan and John,” which Smith authored, tells the story of a brutal incident at a Giants-Dodgers game. This one, however, occurred in 1965.
