GRACE AFTER MIDNIGHT by Felicia “Snoop” Pearson and David Ritz
In GRACE AFTER MIDNIGHT, Felicia Pearson, who plays Snoop in the HBO hit series The Wire, reveals her incredible, hard knock life story, one that dramatically parallels the life of her character on TV.
While Felicia Pearson is a brilliant actor in a truly chilling role, what’s most remarkable about Snoop is what she has overcome in real life. Born a three-pound, cross-eyed crack baby in East Baltimore, and raised in a foster home, Snoop proved she was as tough as the streets. Showing an early aptitude for drug dealing and violence, she thrived as a baby gangsta, until she landed in Jessup State Penitentiary for killing a woman in self-defense. There she rebelled violently against the system, and it took the murder of her childhood mentor, a local drug dealer called Uncle, for her to decide to turn her life around. Then, after being discovered in a nightclub by Michael K. Williams of The Wire and recruited for the show, fiction began to mirror life as Snoop, drawing on the Tribulations of her past, created one of television’s most frightening and intriguing villains.
