Native Daytonian, Author, Actor Returns Home To Kick-0ff Tour

When actor and author, Daniel Beaty, was growing up in Dayton, he wasn’t fully aware that his father was addicted to heroin, and in and out of jail because of it. That realization came later in Daniel’s childhood, but it didn’t stop him from becoming an award-winning author, actor, and educator.
