More About Samuel L. Jackson
Samuel L. Jackson was born in Washington in 1948, though he actually spent his childhood in Tennessee, raised predominantly by his grandmother.
He was introduced to the arts at an early age and often saw movies at the theatre.
After high school, he studied in Atlanta at Morehouse College, and it was here that he first engaged in activism for racial equality. His decision to attend college was somewhat influenced by the Vietnam war, with young men being called upon for military draft.
“I pretty much had to stay in school. Either I make good grades in school or I’m getting shipped off to Vietnam,” he told The Guardian.
He was kicked out of the institution after being involved in a protest. In an effort to put pressure on the college to increase the presence of black people in their trustees, the protestors locked officials who sat on Moorhouse’s board in a building.
Shortly after, he saw a performance by an all-black acting group, the Negro Ensemble Company. He was inspired by this and decided to pursue a career in acting.
Needing to earn money, he got a job as a social worker and lived in Los Angeles for two years. Following his stint in LA, he again enrolled in college, returning to Morehouse, this time to study acting.
He graduated in 1972.
Following his graduation, he became part of a theatre group, the Black Image Theatre Company and toured with the group, performing to audiences across the country.
Until 1976, his acting roles had been based predominantly around issues of race. It was during this year that he relocated to New York in an effort to find more diverse opportunities.
He performed in multiple stage shows and was even the stand-in for Bill Cosby on ‘The Cosby Show’, taking the presenter’s place during rehearsals.
While in New York, he met Spike Lee, a film student at the time, who asked Jackson to collaborate with him in upcoming movies. Jackson appeared in multiple movies made by Lee, including ‘Jungle Fever’, a role that would mark a key moment in his career.
He won multiple high profile awards for his part in the movie.
Following this, he appeared in several movies including ‘White Sands’ and ‘Jurassic Park’. In 1994, he played the role of Jules Winnfield in ‘Pulp Fiction’, receiving an Oscar nomination for his work.
His subsequent work includes roles in ‘A Time To Kill’, ‘Star Wars’, ‘Unbreakable’, and ‘Django Unchained’. He also played the Marvel character, Nick Fury, appearing in several blockbusters.
