Celebrating Black History Month With East Texas Legends: Jamie Foxx
During the month of February it has been observed as Black History Month.
It was created by American historian Carter G. Woodson which was established as Black History Week on February 12th, 1926 and as part of the nation’s bicentennial the week was expanded into Black History Month in 1976.
We notice this month to celebrate, and recall contributions to our nation by people of African American descent, but who have ties to East Texas.
Today we shine a spotlight on Actor/Comedian Jamie Foxx.
In 2018 Jamie Foxx received an honorary doctorate degree from Jarvis Christian College.
Jamie Foxx has (5) studio albums, (3) stand up specials, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and hosting the television show Beat Shazam with his daughter Corinne.
