This week on "Q&A," actress and activist Sonja Sohn discusses her rough childhood and founding her Baltimore-based nonprofit ReWired for Change.
Sohn, well-known for her role as Detective Shakima “Kima” Greggs on the acclaimed series "The Wire," discusses her organization, which works to affect the lives of high risk youth and their families through mentoring, after school programs and community involvement. She also talks about her own troubled childhood, which she described in detail while testifying before the Attorney General's National Task Force on Children Exposed to Violence late last year.
Sohn, whose acting career spans more than 20 years, appeared in numerous films before appearing on the popular HBO series from 2002-2008. She is currently appearing in ABC’s medical drama, “Body of Proof.” Sohn is married with two daughters, and lives in North Carolina.
