Denzel Washington was born on December 28, 1954 in Mount Vernon, New York City. He was admitted to the Pennington-Grimes Elementary School where he studied till he was 14. After that he was sent to a private preparatory school called Oakland Military Academy. After that he attended the Fordham University from where he earned a B.A. in Drama and Journalism. He also played basketball for his university and was really good at it, thus making it difficult for him to decide on which career to pursue.
But after a friend’s suggestion, he decided to try out acting in stage plays. He went to the American Conservatory to further enhance his skills and was given the title roles in the plays ‘The Emperor Jones’ and ‘Othello’. The appreciation he got from the critics convinced him to continue in the field of acting.
