For today's Equality Spotlight, Saved By The Bell's Dexter Darden opens up on the #BlackLivesMatter movement, starring as John Lewis in Son of the South, and more timely passion projects.



Saved By The Bell Renews For Season Two! 📺

First up, Dexter is hitting the books for a new season of Saved By The Bell!

Darden stars in the Peacock reboot as Devante Young and shared his excitement on the show's second season renewal.

"To be on a show that gets two seasons, or multiple seasons and not cancelled after one, especially in a time like this when there's a pandemic... it's a dream come true in all actuality."

Dexter's Inspiring Role In 'Son of the South' 🎬

Darden also stars in the new film, Son of the South, as the late Civil Rights icon John Lewis.

The biographical historical drama film is based on a true story from the 1960's about a Klansman's grandson coming-of-age and advocating for social injustice during the Civil Rights movement. Darden shared:

"A lot of people know John Lewis because of his association with [Dr. Martin Luther] King [Jr.], but do you know everything that he was doing independently to start pushing for the Civil Rights movement? [He was] making sure everything in equality was a thing in the 50's, 60's and 70's and still to his passing."

Darden's connection to this role also comes from his own values as an advocate for the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

"It's important that we do recognize even though we are in a very, very, very rough time... especially coming out of 2020... the leaps and bounds of change that we have made. So it's important to celebrate the wins as well as the progression."

You can watch Dexter on Saved By The Bell streaming now on Peacock.

Well, this is it. The last one. At least for a while. Hopefully, I'm back in the fall, giving you guys all the juiciest under the radar entertainment out there. But, for now, alas, this is the end. I'm doing something special today. I'm giving the usual TV show, movie, video game, and album, but this time, it's not under the radar, or new. It's my favorite things. Things where if people I love haven't seen them, I slap them across the face and make them watch. But, enough sappy stuff, let's get into it!
