Blair Underwood Joins NAACP Get Out the Vote Efforts
Posted on October 26, 2010
Blair Underwood, award-winning actor from The New Adventures of Old Christine, L.A. Law, and numerous movies and television shows, has signed up to help the NAACP mobilize voters leading up to Election Day. Finding the time in his busy shooting schedule - he currently stars in NBC's The Event - Underwood has been a tireless advocate for civil rights, social justice, and voter empowerment.
"100%: that's what I'm looking for," said Underwood. "Anyone that wants to vote should get the opportunity. My voting rights weren't assumed to be inalienable by many just a generation ago. Our parents and grandparents were there. Anything that I can do to engage voters and get people to the polls - sign me up."
