Biography
Common

Academy Award, Emmy, and Grammy–winning artist, actor, author, and activist Common continues to break down barriers through a multitude of critically acclaimed roles, and continued success in all aspects of his career. Common can be seen starring in Apple TV+’s Silo as Robert Sims. This winter, he made his Broadway debut playing Junior in Between Riverside and Crazy. His latest album, A Beautiful Revolution Part 2, was released in September 2021 and served as an inspiring follow-up to his previous album, A Beautiful Revolution Part 1, released in March 2020. His 2019 hit album Let Love was inspired by his work and experiences writing his New York Times–bestselling second memoir, Let Love Have the Last Word.

Common has dedicated countless hours to and has been deeply engaged in social justice and advocacy work around mass incarceration, mental health, and voting. He launched the nonprofit Imagine Justice, and through his Common Ground Foundation, he is dedicated to empowering high school students from underserved communities to become future leaders.
