Continued Support From His Hometown

Anthony thanked everyone from Texas for their continued support of his dreams, including his mother Wilmertine Harrison, grandmother Rosie Harrison, and younger brother Shaquille Robinson, all of Oakwood, as well as other friends and colleagues. He also gives special thanks to Charlotte Pate, his former one-act-play director and high school teacher from Oakwood, who never gave up on him when it came to acting.
