Carolyn Bright Smith – The Mother of Will Smith


This week, I decided to go back to into my archives and because Mother’s Day is Sunday, I thought my exclusive interviews with celebrity moms might be of interest to you.These interviews were recorded in 2007 to promote the National Association of Black Female Executives in Music and Entertainment’s ( NABFEME) Annual Conference.

Founded by former entertainment executive, JOHNNIE WALKER, NABFEME promotes the entry, development and advancement of women of color in music and entertainment. During each conference, Johnnie held a luncheon to honor the mother’s of the industry. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house! I spoke with Dr. Mahalia Hines, mother of Common; Sharon Benjamin Hodo, mother of Andre 3000; and if you like those; I also have Will Smith’s mom! Check out my conversation with CAROLYN BRIGHT SMITH, the mother of WILL SMITH! Hear what she has to say about her life and her famous son!
