Actress Tisha Campbell takes a break from comedy to focus on a real-life drama. She is on the cover of the July 11th issue of Jet Magazine discussing her new documentary and plans to advocate for autism. Jet notes that black children are sometimes diagnosed 2 years later than white children. Tisha's son is 7 years old now, but he wasn't diagnosed until he was 5 years old.
In the documentary, Tisha tells her story, along with four other celebrity moms (Tammy McCrary, Shannon Nash, LaDonna Hughley, and Donna Hunter), to bring awareness, education, and the need to fight for our children's future to the black community. Autism affects children of all races, but many black children are not getting the attention and necessary early intervention they desperately need.
Please watch the trailer below, then spread the word and share the links with family and friends you know whose lives have been touched by autism.
