At the age of five, Niecy, while watching TV with her grandmother, saw Lola Falana for the first time and declared, “that’s what I want to do.” And, so, she did. With successes in a wide range of genres, Niecy Nash is the picture of the Hollywood success story—all without being the picture of the typical Hollywood star.
Miss Nash freely gives of her time to many causes. After losing a brother to youth violence, she has dedicated herself to stopping violence in our schools. Similarly, she valiantly fights to bring awareness to the issue of domestic violence. She is also a crusader in the fights against HIV and breast cancer.
Niecy Nash is one of a rare group of people who uses her celebrity to influence change without seeking out the spotlight for her efforts. For this reason, Miss Nash is our “Humanitarian of the Week.”
