Actor Forest Whitaker and his wife Keisha were photographed with their daughter True, 13, during a day of shopping in Malibu, Calif. on Saturday (May 5). The couple’s eldest daughter together – 15-year-old Sonnet – was not spotted with the trio.
According to the Huffington Post, Forest – who is also father to son Ocean from a previous relationship and step-father to Keisha’s daughter Autumn – recently joined forced with fellow star Sarah Jessica Parker in adopting some of the nation’s worst-performing schools in an effort to help the Obama administration turn them around by integrating arts education.
The two-year initiative will target eight high-poverty elementary and middle schools. The schools were among the lowest-performing schools in each of their states and had qualified for about $14 million in federal School Improvement Grants from the Obama administration. The public-private arts initiative will bring new training for educators at the Aspen Institute, art supplies, musical instruments and programs totaling about $1 million per year, funded by the Ford Foundation, the Herb Alpert Foundation and other sponsors.
Forest will be adopting a school in Des Moines.
