We have to become “the media” sharing the good news. Wendell Pierce is rebuilding New Orleans with new homes. I enjoy reading about those that give back to their community. Our community has contributed to who we are so those that are famous should feel a sense of responsibility. This is why I don’t understand the homeless situation in Los Angeles.
Actor Wendell Pierce, a native New Orleans resident has quietly built 75 homes in the historic African American Pontchartrain Park neighborhood, where he grew up. After Katrina he first rebuilt his parents home, then his neighbors. Pierce is a full-time resident of New Orleans.
He plans on building 100 more homes.
