Emmy Award Winner Visits East Texas

by Ramonica R. Jones

An Emmy award winning actor made a brief stop in the Pineywoods Thursday night.  

James Earl Jones met with East Texans in the Temple Theater at Angelina College. Hundreds of his fans showed up for a meet and greet with the movie star.

Jones won an Emmy for best actor in 'Gabriel's Fire'. He has appeared on television regularly since the 1960s.    

Jones also answered questions from the audience before the evening got started. He signed copies of his autobiography - Voices and Silences - after the event.
