Actor Wendell Pierce is going to appear in the latest HBO series, “Confirmation” about the 1991 scandal with the Judge Clarence Thomas and his former employee, Anita Hill.
Wendell Pierce discusses with Newsweek in his interview here regarding the series,”Confirmation” show, New Orleans and how he’s helping restore the city of Baltimore.

Wendell’s idea to recover Baltimore’s local economy is to invest a $20 million construction project to help develop apartment buildings. The restoration is something that comes after the 2015 violent protests against police.
This investment will offer job opportunities to the city’s Art District which is located steps from Penn Station, the Station North A & E District.
“We are putting together a job-training program to train those who are disenfranchised to be a part of the labor force that builds the apartments,” Wendell told  Newsweek. “This is my response to the Baltimore uprising. The social justice movement of the 21st-century is economic development. Putting people to work is the answer. We all know where violence comes from in the community: It’s a residual effect of an underground economy. The Baltimore plan creates a new economic engine.”
Luckily, Wendell is not the only real estate developer  Ernst Valery’s partners who is doing the 103-unit project and they are breaking ground in July (according to The Baltimore Sun).
In 2007, Wendell also launched the Pontchartrain Park Community Development Corporation to re-build hemostat had been destroyed during Hurricane Katrina.
Wendell gives back to the communities and we’re thankful that he does.
