Dear Mr. James,
My name is Matt Winick and I’m a fan of your acting. My favorite tv show that you played in were Oz. Oz was a great tv show about a fictional prison called Oswald State Correctional Facility where they have different prisoners ranging from different races including different criminal background on how they deal with struggles in prison and how the prison staff deals with politics. In Oz, I thought you did a great job making Jahfree Neema because I liked on how made him have different traits like trying to learn how to understand prison life when it gets hard, caring about Ryan including Suzanne when they faces challenges in losing Cyril when he gets sent to death row, and many others. In American Experience Simple Justice episode, I really liked learning about Thurgood Marshall’s early life on how he got involved in Civil Rights movement. Mr. Francis James, I really thought you did an excellent job portraying as Thurgood Marshall because I liked on how presented Thurgood Marshall’s life on his struggle as an African American facing segregation, how he would work hard to continue to support civil rights along with helping people face segregation, and many others.
Besides your acting career, I liked on how you are an activist to support Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes to reduce discrimination, help raise money to help African Americans who are low-income get an education, and advocate for the need for diversity in entertainment to accept people who are different. Mr. Francis James, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to support Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ right causes really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Your role as Thurgood Marshall In American Experience helped give me some motivation to develop an interest in learning American history. In American history I liked learning the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, a strong importance for health care reform to help people with pre-existing conditions or who can’t afford health insurance get the care they need, protect the environment from pollution, learn about how famous people or different individuals (minorities, women, and people with disabilities) on how they make an impact on society, and many others. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are a very talented actor. You really do an excellent job making your characters or historical figures have different unique traits or how they were significant for history. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and to continue my motivation to learn American history. Here is a small donation for you to use to help improve society. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, doing an excellent job acting, and inspiring me. I wish you the best for the future.
