An accomplished actress and political commentator, Stacey Dash was born and grew up in New York City’s South Bronx. She is the daughter of a Mexican American mother, Linda Lopez and an African American father, Dennis Dash. Both parents passed away after lifelong struggles with addiction.

Dash is best known for her successful acting career spanning more than 30 years.  Her TV performances include The Cosby Show, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and St. Elsewhere. She made her film debut in Enemy Territory, followed by her appearance with the late Richard Pryor in Moving and with Damon Wayans in Mo’ Money, and Mark Wahlberg in Renaissance Man.

She is perhaps best known for her role as Dionne in Clueless, that she followed with her TV series by the same name.

In 2014 Dash joined FOX News Channel as a political analyst and contributor, offering analysis and political commentary across various daytime and primetime programs.

Her political interests originally became public and sparked controversy during the 2012 presidential election when she endorsed presidential candidate Mitt Romney on her personal Facebook and Twitter accounts after having voted for Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election.

After enduring heavy criticism for supporting a conservative candidate during the 2012 election, Dash did it again in 2016 when she bucked the Hollywood film industry and supported Donald Trump for president.

As part of her cultural and political activism, Dash has continued to use her position as a well-known actress and political commentator to voice her opinions and encourage discussion on topics ranging from pop culture to the breakdown of family values and communities.

Stacey Dash draws on the best American traditions of love of God, love of country, love of freedom, and love of family, and promotes the best for America’s future — genuine unity and freedom of education and opportunity.
