Join Black Expressions for a great deal on GRACE AFTER MIDNIGHT
Fans of HBO’s award-winning crime drama The Wire will no doubt recognize Felicia Pearson as Snoop, the heartless drug dealer whose baby-faced appearance masks her murderous heart. But what The Wire watchers don’t know is that Snoop is the real deal—a character drawn almost entirely from Pearson’s own dramatic experiences on Baltimore’s meanest streets.
Born a three-pound crack baby and raised by two elderly foster parents, Pearson literally grew up amidst the worst conditions now plaguing urban America. A straight-A student in school, Snoop was equally as street savvy and was dealing dope when most kids her age were still asking their parents for an allowance. But when she killed another woman in self-defense, Pearson found herself serving time at Jessup State Penitentiary, a life-altering experience.
Discovered in a Baltimore nightclub by a Wire cast member, she was successfully recruited for the show—where her portrayal of “Snoop” has created one of television’s most chilling and unforgettable villains.
In Grace After Midnight, Snoop at last shares her extraordinary journey. It’s a testament to the power of God’s grace in all our lives.
