Tommy details his journey in his memoir “Living in Color". He shares as an infant he was abandoned and found by a woman in a heap of trash. He was adopted and raised by the woman and her family, who was white. "The only color in my house was love," he says, explaining he never felt any type of racism until he was 5 years old.
The actor tells Dr. Ian he was inspired to write this memoir to address the shame he felt during his formative years. He explains he felt shame from the Black community because of who his family was and also felt shame when attending gatherings with his family. Tommy explains this caused him to not bring up or speak much about his family interviews as he rose the ranks in Hollywood.
The "In Living Color" star says despite his avoidance of his family publically, they have always been very supportive and raised him and his siblings in a home of acceptance and compassion for others where racism of any type was never tolerated.
