Photo:  In the decades after World War II, the term "eugenics" had taken on a negative connotation and became increasingly unpopular within academic science. Many organizations and journals that had their origins in the eugenics movement began to distance themselves from the philosophy, such as Planned Parenthood, and as when Eugenics Quarterly became Social Biology in 1969. 4/4  The Orphans of Davenport: Eugenics, the Great Depression, and the War over Children's Intelligence, by Marilyn Brookwood  @MarilynBrookwo1    @wwnorton.  Hardcover – July 27, 2021 https://www.amazon.com/Orphans-Davenport-Depression-Childrens-Intelligence/dp/1631494686 The fascinating―and eerily timely―tale of the forgotten, Depression-era psychologists who launched the modern science of childhood development. “Doomed from birth” was how the psychologist Harold Skeels described two toddler girls at the Iowa Soldiers' Orphans' Home in Davenport, Iowa, in 1934. Their IQ scores, added together, totaled just 81. Following prevailing eugenic beliefs of the times, Skeels and his colleague Marie Skodak assumed that the girls had inherited their parents' low intelligence and were therefore unfit for adoption. The girls were sent to an institution for the “feebleminded” to be cared for by “moron” women. To Skeels and Skodak's astonishment, under the women's care, the children's IQ scores became normal.  Now considered one of the most important scientific findings of the twentieth century, the discovery that environment shapes children's intelligence was also one of the most fiercely contested―and its origin story has never been told. In The Orphans of Davenport, the psychologist and esteemed historian Marilyn Brookwood chronicles how a band of young psychologists in 1930s Iowa shattered the nature-versus-nurture debate and overthrew long-accepted racist and classist views of childhood development. Transporting readers to a rural Iowa devastated by dust storms and economic collapse, Brookwood reveals just how profoundly unlikely it was for this breakthrough to come from the Iowa Child Welfare Research Station. Funded by the University of Iowa and the Rockefeller Foundation, and modeled on America's experimental agricultural stations, the Iowa Station was virtually unknown, a backwater compared to the renowned psychology faculties of Stanford, Harvard, and Princeton. Despite the challenges they faced, the Iowa psychologists replicated increased intelligence in thirteen more “retarded” children. When Skeels published their incredible work, America's leading psychologists―eugenicists all―attacked and condemned his conclusions. The loudest critic was Lewis M. Terman, who advocated for forced sterilization of low-intelligence women and whose own widely accepted IQ test was threatened by the Iowa research. Terman and his opponents insisted that intelligence was hereditary, and their prestige ensured that the research would be ignored for decades. Remarkably, it was not until the 1960s that a new generation of psychologists accepted environment's role in intelligence and helped launch the modern field of developmental neuroscience. Drawing on prodigious archival research, Brookwood reclaims the Iowa researchers as intrepid heroes, and movingly recounts the stories of the orphans themselves, many of whom later credited the psychologists with giving them the opportunity to forge successful lives. A radiant story of the power and promise of science to better the lives of us all, The Orphans of Davenport unearths an essential history at a moment when race science is dangerously resurgent. 16-page black-and-white insert

The result was millions of baby girls abandoned by parents living in overcrowded orphanages. This is where our guest, Robert Glover comes in. He moved his family of six from the UK to Shanghai to help the Chinese government find homes within China for these innocent children.

Meet Janine Maxwell. Along with her husband, Ian, she's the co-founder of Heart for Africa, a faith-based humanitarian organization which has focused on the areas of Hunger, Orphans, Poverty and Education (HOPE) in Eswatini and Kenya for 15 years.   How a Canadian, who was running one of that country's most successful marketing companies, ends up in southern Africa is a compelling story. In 2001, Janine was a self-proclaimed “capitalist pig” in New York, right in the heart of the terrorist attacks on 9/11 and fleeing from gunshots echoing in the madness. It was the kind of life-changing event that plunged her into depression, took her through a period of deep introspection and onto a path for the true meaning of life. When the rollercoaster ride stopped, she found herself in Africa, where she encountered the AIDS pandemic, hunger and disease, and her life forever changed.   “If you say that's not OK, then what are you going to do about it?” Janice says. “You can't say it's not OK, then not do something. Especially not as believers.”   That's what she's written three books to address. A graduate of Evangel University in Springfield, MO, Janine most recently wrote “Hope Lives Here,” through iDisciple Publishing. She and Ian are parents of adult children Spencer and Chloe, and serve as adoptive parents to more than 300 orphans in Africa. Some of what they've seen has been miraculous.   They have witnessed blind children given sight, deaf children's ears opened and lame children who now not only walk but run to school every day. If that's not miraculous enough, consider that of those 300 Janine is helping raise there are some 40 “terrible twos.” Yet she has maintained her sanity — all because she decided to act and encourage others to do the same.   “Do something!” she says. “It doesn't have to be Africa. Do something. Just stop looking in the mirror and stop complaining.”

What happens in prisons is very secretive. It feels even more far removed from our everyday reality when you take into account what happens in prisons around the world including countries such as South Africa, Brazil, and the Ukraine.  Our guest today, Raphael Rowe, spent 12 years in prison for crimes he did not commit. Eventually, his convictions were overturned in 2000. But that experience changed him.  With that perspective and experience, he was able to be the presenter behind this Netflix show Inside the World's Toughest Prisons, where he had the opportunity to visit these prisons, ask prisoners questions pertaining to their stories, and ultimately, give us a unique viewpoint into what's really going on in prisons. That way, we can have a better perspective about what these realities are, and hopefully, we can do something about them.  Raphael is also the host of his own podcast called Second Chance, and the best selling author of his autobiography, Notorious. Just to give you a bit more perspective pertaining to Raphael's career in journalism, he is the first person of mixed race with dreadlocks to report for the British Broadcasting Corporation, on both television and radio, and helped re-write the rules on what makes an international BBC correspondent. He is an experienced investigative journalist and presenter on both prime time television and international platforms. Yet it is being an inspiration to an under-served and diverse audience across the globe that inspires Raphael. He broke the mould on what an international reporter looks like, sounds like and has as a background. He is proud of the fact that in doing so, he inspires others.  Hopefully, by listening to this conversation, you will have an appreciation for the changes that can help make a difference in the everyday lives of inmates around the world. You'll also understand how someone who was imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit leveraged the power of the media to ultimately get out. And you'll also see why rehabilitation is very difficult to ensure and how it's ultimately the decision of each individual.  Share this episode with anyone who would want to see more done when it comes to justice, social reform, or prison reform, either in the U.S., in the UK, or in your part of the world. Enjoy our conversation! Highlights Perspective: People's perceptions were changing when they watched something like Inside the World's Toughest Prisons. In making the documentary, Raphael took on the persona of a prisoner so he was treated like a prisoner. They approached everything with a nonjudgmental attitude and allowed things to play out as they discovered them.  Persona: Having to deal with the threat of violence, whether physical or emotional, shapes the person you become. It becomes a part of your personality to the point you develop a skill set, understanding and an awareness of everything and everyone around you. Skill set: The 12 years he spent in prison has armed him with a number of skill sets he's able to deploy. He has picked up on the threat and has been able to defuse that in real time. So he's still very tuned into that and aware of where the danger is coming from and how to deal with it. Mindset: It starts and ends in the mind. It's all about the shift in the mind. It's as if he was opening a box that is locked in his mind that prepares him for any eventuality.  Demeanor: Even the way you walk can give off a sense of fear. And they can control, manipulate, intimidate, especially the most vulnerable. They can see that, if not smell it or taste it. And so, it's about the way you carry yourself in that environment. Empathy: Raphael asks prisoners from the perspective of empathy and he allows them to tell their story without judging them. Whereas the authority figures or therapists are seeking particular answers to particular questions because they have a way of assessing prisoners to figure out the means to an end.  Persistence: He felt there was something deep inside him that was so angry, and so twisted and so bitter, that kept him going. Hope: Raphael had this deep belief from the moment he was arrested that he had some hope to cling onto. Whether it was as simple as a letter telling him that something was about to change. Or a visit from one of his family members, or a letter from a stranger telling him they believe in him.  Journalism: The media played a significant role in his wrongful convictions. But he also needed the media to tell people he was innocent. In prison, Raphael spent the time understanding the media put him in good stead to become a real journalist when he left prison. Resources: Where there is an opportunity, prisoners do and should take those opportunities to look after themselves and prepare to stand up for themselves. The resources are available as well as the courses and the training provided by the prison service.  Change: Prisoners have to choose to make those decisions for themselves. The individual has to want to change. They have to break free of whatever it is that got them into their situation.  Empathy: People need to be more empathetic with prisoners for them to understand what it is that will make that individual make the decision that they want to change. Choice: Wherever you are in whatever prison in whatever country, whatever resources, whatever training, whatever you are prepared to put in front of the prisoner, unless that prisoner is prepared to change their own life, none of it makes any difference. Support: As a family member of a prisoner, we need to listen. Listen when you're least expected to hear something instead of giving them a lecture. Then try to implement something subtly that can bring about a change in their character or in their personality. Creativity: Raphael decided the media was not his enemy and he leveraged the media to get out of jail. What are the things in your life right now that you feel challenged by? Reimagine the way you perceive different entities and forces in your life to turn them for good. Curiosity: Raphael is asking questions to uncover what might be some sustainable ways to help everyday prison life be easier. Is there something you want to build or start? take cues from what makes you curious and investigate.  Courage: Raphael held on to his innocence while in prison. He was 100% invested in his own self-preservation so that he could ultimately get out of prison and reclaim his innocence. Is there a place in your life where you can be more courageous pertaining to something that matters but not everyone would agree on?

Two of the greatest bastions of British journalism. Born and brought up in south-east London, my tone, style and accent was different to that normally heard on the flagship Today programme and caused an immediate stir in 2001 amongst the traditional Radio 4 audience. Two years after joining the BBC I became BBC3's launch current affairs undercover reporter on a number of programmes including, Movers, Shakers and Crack Takers, Gangland Manchester and Blood Diamonds, the exploitation, and routes used by terrorists to smuggle conflict diamonds. This was dangerous undercover work but I enjoyed it immensely.   I also presented a number of programmes for BBC2 including This World: Locked in Paradise and Who Killed Kelso Cochrane? I investigated and presented a fascinating three-part investigation which revealed the UK's first criminal underworld rich list, including smugglers, drug barons and fraudsters. After joining Panorama in 2006 I reported on a wide range of issues, including Bursting the House Price Bubble, Addiction to Games, Track my Trash, Jailed for a Knife, Smugglers Tales, Orphans of Haiti, Kill at Will: America on trial, and Children's Fight Club, DIY Justice. During one of my first investigations, Death on Corfu I uncovered crucial information that helped the parents of two children who died from carbon dioxide poisoning whilst on a Thomas Cook package holiday to secure justice. My investigation for Panorama into the murder of the BBC celebrity, Jill Dando, cast doubts on the firearms forensic evidence used at the trial of Barry George, who was convicted of killing the BBC TV presenter. In August 2008, Barry George was acquitted at a retrial and freed. I have reported from some of the most dangerous and hostile places in the world, Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Sierra Leone, Borneo, Nigeria, Jamaica, Beirut, Colombia, Papua New Guinea and Haiti to name a few. I am a highly experienced and skilled investigative journalist and presenter on both prime time television and international streaming platforms such as Netflix but it is an inspiration to an under-served and diverse audience that I focus my activities now. I am Raphael Rowe and my career was born as a result of spending 12 years in prison for crimes I did not commit.” FREE DOWNLOAD Want to grab your free copy of the Courage Makerspace (™) Playbook?

Tausha Pearson would tell you, “It all started with a ‘crazy' single mom tax return…” “Crazy” meaning—she had a chunk of money she didn't need. So, she took that tax return and spent it on a trip to Haiti. While touring Haitian orphanages with 11 social work interns, Tausha learned 80% of the orphans had families who desperately wanted them home but couldn't afford to feed and educate them. In addition to this sad reality, she discovered rampant sexual abuse occurring in every orphanage they visited. Tausha couldn't unsee this devastation; she took action by creating Haiti Mama—an organization devoted to providing parents with services and employment to help families remain intact. Tausha is a disrupter—she disrupted ineffective (and abusive!) child welfare practices and implemented support to reunite Haitian families!

Their lives restart in incredible ways as societal pressure propels the couple to embark on a treacherous journey to New York with dreams, hopes, and memories in tow.Release Date: Opens Friday, June 25, 2021 in NY and LA (with a national rollout throughout July)Directed by: Heidi EwingScreenplay by: Heidi Ewing and Alan Page ArriagaStarring: Armando Espitia, Christian Vázquez, Michelle Rodríguez, Ángeles Cruz, Raúl Briones, and Arcelia RamírezDistributed by: Sony Pictures ClassicsGenre: DramaRunning Time: 1 hour 51 minutesRated RTRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL 2021 WRAP-UPFeatured Narrative Films:No Man of GodWebsite: TribecaTribeca Film Festival Synopsis: It was a radical new approach to criminal investigations: “profiling.” Through one-on-one discussions with serial offenders, FBI researchers could go much more in-depth. FBI analyst Bill Hagmaier (Elijah Wood), emboldened by this new philosophy, sat down with famed serial killer Ted Bundy (Luke Kirby) for several interviews from 1984-1989 inside Florida State Prison, in hopes of figuring out why Bundy murdered more than 20 victims. What started out as a straightforward informational assignment gradually turned personal for Hagmaier, whose feelings about his charismatic subject grew more complicated with each conversation. Is it possible to empathize with evil?Studies of Ted Bundy's life and crimes have been in vogue lately, but this two-character study from director Amber Sealey is the most sober and psychologically intricate look at the killer's story yet. With a pair of dynamic performances at its center, particularly that of an exceptional Kirby as Bundy, No Man of God is riveting in its intimate chamber piece structure. Sealey and company, including writer Kit Lesser, who based the screenplay on real-life transcripts, don't glamourize the oft-romanticized Bundy; instead, No Man of God deftly balances emotional complexity and clear-eyed truthfulness. —Matt BaroneRelease Date: In theaters and available on demand and digital August 27, 2021Directed by: Amber SealeyScreenplay by: Kit LesserStarring: Elijah Wood, Luke Kirby, Aleksa Palladino, and Robert PatrickDistributed by: RLJE FilmsGenre: Drama, ThrillerRunning Time: 1 hour 40 minutesNot RatedIndia Sweets and SpicesWebsite: TribecaTribeca Film Festival Synopsis: On her summer break from college, outspoken Indian American freshman Alia returns home to her wealthy New Jersey suburb and for the first time pushes back against her parents' pretentious lifestyle. After a year at UCLA, she's eager to trade in the family's lavish Saturday-night dinner parties and the gossiping “aunties” of her community for a more meaningful existence—even if she doesn't quite know what that looks like yet. When Alia meets Varun (Rish Shah), the handsome son of local shopkeepers, she impulsively invites him to her straitlaced mother's upcoming extravagant soiree, and accidentally uncovers a pair of family secrets in the process. In this fresh take on the classic coming of age story, writer-director Geeta Malik brings a tongue in cheek sense of humor and an acute understanding of class privilege to an award winning script. And actress Sophia Ali delivers a charming performance as the rebellious leading lady who confronts her parents' values in order to understand her own evolving identity. —Lucy MukerjeeNo release date yetDirected by: Geeta MalikScreenplay by: Geeta MalikStarring: Sophia Ali, Manisha Koirala, Adil Hussain, Deepti Gupta, Rish Shah, and Ved SapruGenre: Comedy, Drama, RomanceRunning Time: 1 hour 41 minutes12 Mighty OrphansWebsite: Official SiteTribeca Film Festival Synopsis: 12 Mighty Orphans tells the true story of the Mighty Mites, the football team of a Fort Worth orphanage who, during the Great Depression, went from playing without shoes—or even a football—to playing for the Texas state championships. Over the course of their winning season these underdogs and their resilient spirit became an inspiration to their city, state, and an entire nation in need of a rebound, even catching the attention of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The architect of their success was Rusty Russell, a legendary high school coach who shocked his colleagues by giving up a privileged position so he could teach and coach at an orphanage. Few knew Rusty's secret: that he himself was an orphan. Recognizing that his scrawny players couldn't beat the other teams with brawn, Rusty developed innovative strategies that would come to define modern football.Release Date: Opens in Texas Friday, June 11, 2021 and everywhere Friday, June 18, 2021Directed by: Ty RobertsScreenplay by: Ty Roberts, Lane Garrison, Kevin MeyerStarring: Luke Wilson, Vinessa Shaw, Martin Sheen, Robert Duvall, Wayne Knight, Jake Austin Walker, Lane Garrison, Levi Dylan, Jacob Lofland, Treat Williams, and Scott HazeDistributed by: Sony Pictures ClassicsGenre: Drama, History, SportsRunning Time: 1 hour 58 minutesRated PG-13Werewolves WithinWebsite: Official SiteTribeca Film Festival Synopsis: Forest ranger Finn Wheeler (Veep's Sam Richardson) is jazzed about his latest assignment: temporarily living inside The Beaverfield Inn, a cozy, woods-bound nook run by nice folks and frequented by Beaverfield's colorful array of residents, for the duration of a new pipeline construction project. Little does he realize, his timing couldn't be worse. For one, a major snowstorm is set to rid him and the inn's occupants of communication with the outside world. And two, something is on the loose and brutally murdering Beaverfield's denizens—perhaps something lycanthropic. As the body count rises, it's up to Finn to play the reluctant hero and figure what, or who, is shrinking Beaverfield's population.Building on the horror-comedy fun of his 2020 debut, Scare Me (a Shudder Exclusive), director Josh Ruben expands both his storytelling scope and offbeat hilarity quotient with this delightfully macabre whodunit/monster movie, based on Ubisoft's popular VR game of the same name. It's also the perfect leading man vehicle for Richardson, whose lovable everyman charms complement a strong cast of TV comedy fan favorites, including AT&T commercial fixture Milana Vayntrub, Casual's Michaela Watkins and What We Do in the Shadows' Harvey Guillén. —Matt BaroneRelease Date: Opens in theaters and drive-ins Friday, June 25, 2021; Everywhere you rent movies Friday, July 2, 2021Directed by: Josh RubenScreenplay by: Mishna WolffStarring: Sam Richardson, Milana Vayntrub, Michaela Watkins, Cheyenne Jackson, Glenn Fleshler, and Harvey GuillénDistributed by: IFC FilmsGenre: Comedy, Horror, MysteryRunning Time: 1 hour 37 minutesRated RFalse PositiveWebsite: HuluTribeca Film Festival Synopsis: After difficult struggles with fertility, loving couple Lucy (Ilana Glazer) and Adrian (Justin Theroux) seem to have finally found their potential savior in the charming and world-renowned reproductive specialist Dr. Hindle (Pierce Brosnan). But as their dreams begin to come true and hope transforms to happiness, cracks start to appear in the façade of normalcy, sending the now-expectant mother into a spiral of suspicion that threatens her grasp on reality. A clever and chilling look at gender roles and the notion of unconditional trust, False Positive delivers an unexpectedly twisted tale of modern family troubles. Boasting a solid ensemble cast, including a memorable turn from Gretchen Mol as Hindle's loyal nurse, director John Lee has truly found a kindred spirit in leading lady and co-writer Glazer. Longtime collaborators on the acclaimed Broad City, the two have shifted gears entirely here, abandoning the jokes but maintaining the edge for this genre-bending thriller about the perils of parenthood. —Loren HammondsRelease Date: Available on Hulu Friday, June 25, 2021Directed by: John LeeScreenplay by: John Lee and Ilana GlazerStarring: Ilana Glazer, Justin Theroux, Gretchen Mol, Sophia Bush, Zainab Jah, and Pierce BrosnanDistributed by: A24 and HuluGenre: Horror, ThrillerRunning Time: 1 hour 32 minutesRated RFeatured Documentaries:WolfgangWebsite: DisneyTribeca Film Festival Synopsis: From acclaimed filmmaker and Tribeca alum David Gelb (Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Chef's Table) comes another mouthwatering delight of a film about one of the first “celebrity chefs” to rule the scene and a pioneer in the world of California cuisine, Wolfgang Puck. Pushing beyond the sunny, superstar persona, Gelb follows Puck as he revisits his birthplace in Austria, revealing an abusive childhood that pushed him to flee home and fight for a life of his own as a teenager. With Puck steadily gaining life confidence and cooking know-how in his homeland, France and, eventually, America, he would officially launch a storied career in Los Angeles with the opening of the celebrity hot spot of the 80s and 90s, Spago. Though Puck's inventive cuisine has remained the core of his popularity, his charming, energetic persona is what pushed him to a stratosphere of fame that would eventually include countless TV appearances, cookbooks and restaurants that span the globe. Using a wealth of archival material and eye-dazzling cinematography of Puck's truly mouth-watering food, Gelb expertly brings us into the kitchen—and the mind—of this obsessively hard-working and inspirational virtuoso. Be prepared to leave hungry. —Liza DomnitzRelease Date: Available on Disney+ Friday, June 25, 2021Directed by: David GelbWritten by: Brian McGinnFeaturing: Wolfgang Puck, Barbara Lazaroff, Byron Puck, Christina Puck, Nancy Silverton, Evan Funke, Ruth Reichl, Laurie Ochoa, and Michael OvitzDistributed by: Disney+Genre: Biography, Documentary, FoodRunning Time: 1 hour 18 minutesThe Lost LeonardoWebsite: Sony Pictures ClassicsTribeca Film Festival Synopsis: In 2008, a few of the world's most distinguished Leonardo Da Vinci experts gathered around an easel at the National Gallery in London to examine a mysterious painting–an unassuming Salvator Mundi (Latin for Savior of the World)–found in a shady New Orleans auction house, that a select few believed to be a long-forgotten masterwork by Leonardo Da Vinci. That day, Salvator Mundi was authenticated as being the creation of Da Vinci himself, and thus, one of the most beguiling and perplexing stories of the 21st century was set into motion.Unfolding as a gripping, real-life art thriller, The Lost Leonardo pulls back the curtain to uncover the stranger than fiction story behind how a Salvator Mundi painting went from bargain-basement replication to setting the world record as the most expensive painting ever sold at auction, weighing in at an astonishing $450 million. Director Andreas Keofoed positions this story squarely at the intersection of capitalism and myth-making, posing the question: is this multi-million dollar painting actually by Leonardo, or do certain powerful players simply want it to be? The Lost Leonardo detangles how a painting became a pawn in a geopolitical game played by the world's wealthiest and most powerful people, ultimately revealing how vested interests became all-important, and the truth secondary. —Shayna WeingastRelease Date: Opens NY & LA Friday, August 13, 2021Directed by: Andreas KoefoedWritten by: Duska Zagorac, Andreas Dalsgaard, Mark Monroe, Christian Kirk Muff, and Andreas KoefoedFeaturing: Dianne Modestini, Yves Bouvier, Evan Beard, Robert Simon, Alexander Parish, Warren Adelson, Luke Syson, Martin Kemp, Frank Zöllner, Maria Teresa Fiorio, Jacques Franck, Kenny Schachter, Bruce Lamarche, Jerry Saltz, Robert K Wittman, Alexandra Bregman, Georgina Adam, Alison Cole, Bradley Hope, Doug Patteson, Stephane Lacroix, Antoine Harari, Didier Rykner, David D.

Known for his unapologetic and charismatic stage presence, James has been celebrated for his massive catalog of such hit songs as "Mary Jane" and "Superfreak." In this definitive portrait, acclaimed filmmaker Sacha Jenkins examines the brain beneath the braids, charting his soaring artistic success and eventual personal decline. Sexuality, race, and the tumultuous stew of American culture all contributed to the transformation of the songwriter born as James Ambrose Johnson into the larger-than-life performer forever known as Rick James. Against a soundtrack that compels you to get out of your seat from the opening moments, Jenkins approaches his subject not with reverence, but instead with indisputable care as he delves into the circumstances that birthed this one-of-a-kind personality. Surprising and enlightening, Jenkins' film still pulls no punches with its exploration of James' tragic obsessions. Comprised of rare archival performances, animation, interviews with family and collaborators and recorded conversations with James himself, this crowd-pleasing film proves the impact that this undeniable force had on American music and popular culture. —Loren Hammonds*Part of the Juneteenth programmingComing soon to ShowtimeDirected by: Sacha JenkinsWritten by: Sacha Jenkins, Steve Rivo, and Jason PollardDistributed by: Showtime NetworksGenre: Documentary, MusicRunning Time: 1 hour 51 minutes See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Slade Monroe recently joined host Elias in the cave! Slade stars as Wheatie on 12 Mighty Orphans. The film follows the remarkable true story of the "Mighty Mites" Texas football team who stole the nation's heart during the Great Depression. Slade plays the the character of Wheatie, the quarterback and leader of the team. Slade took what he could from the book “12 Mighty Orphans” and filled in the blanks with his own experiences and the characteristics from fellow players on his football teams growing up. Born and raised right outside of Dallas, Texas, actor Slade Monroe knew he had the performers spark from an early age. Slade gives credit to both major and minor moments that led him to begin taking acting classes to pursue a career on the big screen whether it was creating stories with toys or watching his first musical, the local stage adaptation of Gene Wilder's “Young Frankenstein,”. While in high school, Slade juggled the school football team and acting in the drama club. Having a love for both, Slade was put in a position to pick one over the other due to an academic scheduling conflict. Ultimately, he chose to follow his greater passion and focus his attention down that path; the stage.
