Brian: (when asked to describe himself) Brian White is a Renaissance Man. A thespian. A philanthropist. An entrepreneur. A stockbroker. A producer. A writer. An athlete. An artist. A dancer. A son. A brother. A pioneer. A unique individual.
Brian: Steppin' is no joke! In fact, it was harder than dancing. Dancing breaks down movements by count and is less abstract for my brain and body to absorb. Steppin' is syncopated and it took me awhile to get the hang of it.
Brian: I think about my career as a marathon and not a sprint. I'm from an athletic family and athletes are great people for this kind of business because you are well trained to perform on cue under external pressure.
Brian: I like to work with great talent, period. It inspires me to do my best work. I select projects based on the character first. Is this a character I've never played before? I thrive to work in different genres. To me, art is about challenging myself. My secondary goal, by virtue of being a black man is always to represent a positive image of African-Americans to mainstream America like my cinema heroes, Harry Belafonte, Sidney Poitier, Denzel Washington, and Will Smith.
Brian: (on being the son of an NBA star) I got to grow up watching games from the bench. I also got to meet my idols. Red Auerbach is one of them, and he was actually the first person who encouraged me to go to Dartmouth.
Brian: You should listen to your own rhythm, listen to your own conscience, and figure out for yourself what makes your soul happy.
Brian: The future belongs to our children: Pay it forward with positive role modeling.
