Steelers’ wide receiver Hines Ward will be featured in the documentary NFL Characters Unite where he shares his personal story of dealing with prejudice to aid teens that are facing similar situations.
Ward, along with Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez, Saints tight end Jimmie Graham and former Colts head coach Tony Dungy, will share stories in the one hour documentary on USA Network on Friday, Feb. 10 at 7 p.m., while at the same time sharing the story of a teen going through a similar fight.
Ward, who had to deal with discrimination as a child because he is biracial, is teamed with Carlton Dennis, a junior at Clairton High School who is originally from Trinidad. Dennis has faced discrimination and through his relationship with Ward and the Hear Me Project composed an anti-discrimination rap song that is available through iTunes.
