Now this is how you grow love The O.G. Way!

Tracy Morgan is a sweet reminder of the importance of investing back into your community—Especially those that are subject to having its history erased. As he celebrates season 2 of The Last O.G., TBS that premieres today, we got to hang out with the star Wednesday, March 28th as he returned to his childhood roots Bed-Stuy, a neighborhood in Brooklyn to sew his royal oats by rediscovering the Hattie Carthon Community Garden— in which he teamed up with GrownNYC. It’s aesthetically cool and serves as a beacon of light to the youth and all that were involved in the process.

As in any urban soiree, there’s a lot to indulge! Award-winning Chef JJ Johnson introduced a live cooking demonstration from a recipe in The Last O.G. Cookbook that left attendees with a fresh perspective about healthy eating. The photo-op backdrop serving as an art installation by Bed-Stuy native Tiffany B. Chanel was the natural hub spot and the main attraction of the gathering. And it wouldn’t be a garden party if you didn’t have the chance to plant a flower— in our case we got to take one home that was personalized by the tv show!

Although Morgan has managed to build an elite career, he now feels empowered to build on the narrative of bringing wealth, health and education to your community. “I gave you a number one TV show, now I need something. I want back. I want to give back to my community and I want you to help me give back to my community.” Supporters applauded with gratitude as Morgan continued his heartfelt speech on his commitment to preserving the neighborhood and what he hopes to receive from people of different color, creed, age, and sexual orientation that are the pillars of Bed-Stuy. But, what was most touching was the declaration of wisdom to the young women and men who stood close by in awe of what appeared to be their superhero, “To all the youth, you gotta be good. You gotta be good. We gotta get back to that.”
