Carteris is filming a segment of "Face the Hate," a show that examines young peoples' attitudes toward prejudice and intolerance in America. Carteris is the show's host.

The Rafer Johnson who ran the Olympic torch with grace, dignity and pride into the Coliseum at the start of the 1984 Summer Olympics.
