Today we know Antwone Fisher as an award-winning screenwriter and literary writer. However, his life did not begin with such promise.
Born Antwone Quenton Fisher in an Ohio prison to a teenage mother, Fisher became a ward of the state and was placed in foster care. He spent two years in a loving foster home, but when Social Services deemed the foster mother to have become too attached to him, he was placed in another home where he would suffer 12 years of abuse. Fisher survived the cruelties of foster care and the brutalities of homelessness and set on a course of healing after joining the United State Navy where he served his country for 11 years.
Fisher is now an award-winning screenwriter, author, producer, and director, having worked in Hollywood for 17 years compiling an impressive 14 writing projects or assignments with major studios.
Those projects include the feature classic Antwone Fisher (Fox Searchlight), which he wrote himself and which was directed by Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington; the New York Times bestseller Finding Fish: A Memoir, the inspiring story of his incredible life's journey; Who Will Cry for the Little Boy', a collection of poetry; and his most recent book, A Boy Should Know How to Tie a Tie and Other Lessons for Succeeding in Life, which won the 2011 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work.
In Fisher's moving yet humorous lectures, he shares his conviction of facing life's challenges head-on. He explains the importance of self-reliance, literacy, and building a life of consequence that improves oneself, one's community, and society at large. In unique and poignant presentations, Fisher shares the philosophy he developed over his lifetime with audiences around the country and explains how it brought him to the extraordinary success he enjoys today.
