Bobby Spears, Jr. is a husband, father, and writer. An Alumnus of Howard University, Spears attended Howard on an Annenberg Scholarship which was awarded in part due to an academic paper he wrote on the importance of changing the way minorities are viewed and view themselves in the media. After graduating in 1996 with a B.A. in TV/Film production, he chose to work in his family business, providing housing and attendant care to the mentally disabled. However, Spears never gave up on his desire to impact the world through media, so at the age of 43 he decided to focus on writing and TV/film production. He is supported and motivated to succeed by his wife Adrienne and two children, Zakhari and Zoie.
