Summary: Law & Order’s detective Kevin Bernard explains why he opted to become a spokesman for the Fearless African Americans Connected and Empowered Diabetes campaign. “You watch television and you see commercials, and when they talked about diabetes, I didn’t think any of those commercials were speaking to people like me,” he tells Film Festival Radio host Janice Malone. "You have Wilford Brimley. You have a former Miss America. You have Patti LaBelle. You have BB King. But no one was speaking to the young black youths. And here I was being diagnosed as a diabetic myself.”
