About the Scientist


Cedric Porties and his wife Tiffany, began a joint venture, in which they utilize African American action figures and memorabilia to empower our youth to persevere through adversity and achieve their dreams. Drawing from Porties own struggles, in life to create a vehicle to help uplift our youth to achieve, succeed and to excel. His passion will be demonstrated this Saturday, June 29, 2019 here at The Wright!

The take-away, for our youth is perseverance in navigating through adversity to accomplish their dreams. Now enters “The Black Panther,” and other African American action figures.
