Darden’s Daughter: “I Wish That Experience On NO ONE”
“I don’t talk about this part of my life but my father is Christopher Darden, the attorney who prosecuted O.J. Simpson.

I decided to watch the series after reading a few interviews with actor Sterling K. Brown, who plays my father. Of course I was concerned about how Brown would represent my father. My father declined to meet him, but it looks like he did his homework so far. He spoke in an interview about having more compassion for my father being a proud black man and having to prosecute a successful black man. Mind you, my father did this on television”….”
