LOS ANGELES, April 7 (UPI) -- The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story co-star Sterling K. Brown says he vividly remembers where he was and how he felt when the former football great was acquitted of double homicide in 1995 after a racially charged trial in Los Angeles.
"At the time, I was a freshman at Stanford University and I was living in one of the ethnic themed houses on campus, which was for the African-Americans. So, it was 50 percent African-American, 50 percent white and when that verdict came down, the black students rejoiced. I mean, we were so happy and the other students, the non-black students, were looking at us like, 'What is there to rejoice about?'" the actor told UPI in a recent phone interview.
