Samuel Leroy Jackson Biography:

He was raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee by his grandma. He moved to New York City where his camaraderie with Spike Lee helped him get his first film gigabytes. In 1994, he’d acquired a part in the cult success, Pulp Fiction. From the age of 63, he previously appeared in over 100 movies, as well as in 2011 he was named the best grossing actor of time with more than $7.2 billion in riches.

His mom, Elizabeth Jackson, joined them when he was 10. An early picture enthusiast, Jackson often viewed movies in the neighborhood movie theatre and acquired exposure to the complex messages enclosing the black presence on-screen.

Jackson’s early memories stayed with him when he entered the historically black Morehouse College in Atlanta and became increasingly associated with the black-power movement. In 1969, his junior year, he protested the lack of blacks on the board of trustees by locking in several board members in a building for 2 days, and was quickly expelled in the school. The exact same year, Jackson saw a performance by the Negro Ensemble Company and developed a fresh motivation—acting. After employed as a social worker for a couple of years in La, Jackson returned to Morehouse to pursue the analysis of performing and received his degree in 1972.
