While he was in Morehouse, Jackson, along with several colleagues, participated in a demonstration that took control of the campus.

Career.

After playing a series of characters in films without much repercussion, Samuel L. Jackson would participate in Patriot Games (1992), along with Harrison Ford. The following year, he played a secondary character in Jurassic Park (1993), directed by Steven Spielberg and next to actors such as Sam Neill, Laura Dern, or Richard Attenborough.

Quentin Tarantino.

He worked with Quentin Tarantino on numerous occasions, the first one was in the thriller Pulp Fiction (1994), in which he shared credits with John Travolta and Uma Thurman. For his performance of Jules Winnfield, Samuel L Jackson received nominations for the Oscar, the Golden Globe Awards, and the Actors Guild Award, all of them as “Best Supporting Actor” and winning the BAFTA in the same category.
