NPR stories about Hill Harper
You've seen him on television in hit shows like CSI: NY and Covert Affairs, but Hill Harper's most important role may be off-screen. He sat down with NPR's Michel Martin to discuss his longtime friendship with an inmate, documented in his new book, Letters to an Incarcerated Brother.
Valentine's Day is one of the most anticipated and dreaded days of the year, depending on whom you ask. It might be especially poignant for African Americans, who have some of the lowest marriage rates in the U.S. A panel of African-American writers, all of whom have written books about black love and loss, share their theories on what many believe is a disconnect between black men and women.
Besides acting in television and film, Hill Harper spends much of his free time mentoring young people. His newest book is aimed at young black women; it's titled Letters to a Young Sister. Actress Gabrielle Union wrote the book's foreword.
