You may know Karyn Parson as Will Smith's sister Hillary on the hit NBC sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air". What you don't know is that Karyn has founded SweetBlackberry.org, which is dedicated to bringing African-American history alive through animated shorts narrated by Alfre Woodard, Queen Latifah and Chris Rock. Impressed at a young age from stories shared by her librarian Mom regarding Henry "Box" Brown ( a slave who shipped himself to freedom), she has noticed the increasingly absent history of African-Americans in our society. Through SweetBlackberry.org, Karyn is taking the torch from her Mom and making sure that our history stays vibrant for many generations to come.
