Mr. Crutcher was born on the south side of Chicago, in what today is known as the “hood”, but worked his way out of his circumstances through dedication and hard work. He received his MBA from Northwestern University before going on to DePaul Law School. Will spent years in corporate America before launching his own line of African American skin care products.
You Are A Star NFP was born from a dream Mr. Crutcher had in 1996 wherein he saw children of color whisked away to a magical land – a land called YesYouCan. Thus, our organization was born from a dream, a dream about children of color being needed, being necessary, to save a magical world. Our stage productions come directly from, or are directly influenced by, the message contained in that very first dream.
