But Karyn couldn't be more different from the character that made her famous. She is the devoted mom of two children, and a loving wife to her husband, Alexandre Rockwell.

KARYN PARSON - WRITING AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY

Unlike the character that made her famous, Hilary Banks, Karyn Parsons is invested in changing the world - one story at the time.

The actress founded a non-profit organization, Sweet Blackberry, through which she writes the histories of forgotten figures in African-American culture. The same histories are told in animated films made for children.

Karyn's company has produced three illustrated shorts: "The Journey of Henry ‘Box’ Brown", "Garrett's Gift" and "Dancing in the Light: The Janet Collins Story."

The shorts were narrated by actors Alfre Woodard, Queen Latifah, and Chris Rock. Karyn is now producing a fourth animation, "The Bessie Coleman Story," about the first Black woman to become a pilot.
