Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino

Donald Glover is most commonly known as Troy from NBC’s hit show Community, but there is much more to this cat than his acting. His stand-up  is hilarious, he can rap – using his alias Childish Gambino (which I recently found out came from the Wu-Tang name generator), he can write, but I think he’s an even better intellectual. I’d have to say Donald is one of the most inspirational people I’ve come across; he’s been fighting the stigma that black kids can’t make it in America without striking it rich in the NBA or NFL, and his work has been this stigma’s most formidable antithesis.
