For as long as I've been watching Denzel on the big screen (small screen, too). I've also taken notice of his continued support of the organization which meant so much to him as a young person. I remember the very first time I saw Denzel Washington on TV talking about that organization that he was a member of when he was a child.
Denzel Washington never misses an opportunity to share the importance of the Boys & Girls Club. The organization he's loved his entire life recently achieved a milestone he didn't want to miss.
