CAMERON BOYCE'S CONNECTION TO HISTORICAL TEENS
"THE CLINTON 12" IS TOLD IN A "BE INSPIRED" SEGMENT COMMEMORATING BLACK HISTORY MONTH
ON DISNEY XD AND DISNEY CHANNEL
Popular young Disney actor Cameron Boyce's personal connection to "The Clinton 12" -- the historical African-American teens who were first to integrate a public school in the South in 1956 -- is told in a new installment of the interstitial series "Be Inspired," premiering MONDAY, FEBRUARY 1 on Disney XD and Disney Channel, in commemoration of Black History Month. Boyce's grandmother, Jo Ann Allen Boyce, was among "The Clinton 12."
The "Be Inspired" cameras followed as Cameron, his sister, parents and grandmother make their first visit together to the monument, its 12 life-size sculptures of the students and the Green McAdoo Cultural Center in Clinton, Tennessee.
Boyce commented, "My Nana is part of 'The Clinton 12'; I've always known she is incredible and now, everyone else will know too."
The "Be Inspired" segments are made for kids age 6-14 and their families.
Cameron stars in the Disney XD series "Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much Everything" and in Disney Channel's hit movie "Descendants" (2015's #1 cable TV telecast among Kids 2-11, Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14 and its #1 cable TV movie in Total Viewers) and previously, its hit series "Jessie" (a Top 9 series among Kids 9-14 in 2015).
The "Be Inspired" interstitial will premiere just prior to an episode of "Gravity Falls" (8:00-8:30 p.m. EST) on Disney XD and during an episode of "K.C. Undercover" (8:00-8:30 p.m. EST) on Disney Channel.
