Richard T. Jones (On the dropping of his lawsuit against CBS): I am relieved that this matter was worked out between the studio and myself and that there was no need to pursue legal action. My concern was always the exploration of my creative and artistic freedom - and those issues have been resolved. I'm looking forward to next season.
Richard T. Jones: The Sixteenth Round by Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter was probably the first book I read as an adult. The story made me think about the many challenges faced by Black males in this society. Carter's belief in himself pulled him out of the depths of poverty and let him become a champion boxer. Ultimately, that same drive and passion got him released from prison.
