26 years ago, founder and actress @lauraleigh51
started The Unusual Suspects in response to the 1992 LA Riots in hopes of giving community members who felt disenfranchised a powerful platform for self expression and healing. Now, decades later, thousands have been challenged, believed in and provided unimaginable opportunities through our extensive work.
As we celebrate our 26th Year Anniversary, we are honored to highlight 26 #UnusualSuspects
who helped get us to where we are today. Today we honor our first, Laura Leigh Hughes.
Here she is proudly receiving the 2007 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award at the White House.
