Actor Kal Penn, best known for starring in the Harold and Kumar movies, visited with students and local Obama for America-Ohio supporters Thursday afternoon at Wilberforce University.
Penn, who actually is considered the president's ambassador to young voters, discussed with the nearly 80 students and Obama supporters gathered in the student union, the choice they have to make in November's election between what he called, "two fundamentally different visions of how to grow the economy while investing in more affordable, higher education."
The National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center in Wilberforce has been closed since August of 2011 because of a mold problem. The Ohio Historical Society has been working on fixing the issue so the museum can open its doors again.
“When I play on the street corner, I’m trying my best to tug at someone’s heartstrings, to bring them back to a love that they remember or a love that they had. It’s to inspire and give away my love, ‘cause I love Dayton. We shootin’ kinda bad right now, but we will come back.”
