Loy Webb

Until hearing that actor Hill Harper (CSI: NY) earned a law degree before pursing his dream of being an actor, Loy Webb did not realize it was possible to pursue dual dreams. Inspired by his story, she became both an Attorney and Playwright.  She is a member of The Black Playwright’s Initiative ran by the Black Ensemble Theatre and a freelance writer who writes about faith, personal development and pop culture.

When we do that, we’ll find that deep down, we are more alike than we are different.
