Cherry joins national correspondent Jericka Duncan to discuss his Oscar-nominated animated short film, "Hair Love," which tells the story of a black father doing his daughter's hair for the first time. Cherry discusses why it's important to normalize natural hair and expand representation in Hollywood. Plus, he shares what it was like to pivot to a new career after playing football and what it means to follow in the footsteps of Kobe Bryant, who was the first professional athlete to be nominated for an Oscar for the 2018 animated short "Dear Basketball."
