About Jamal Trulove
San Francisco native, Jamal Trulove, is an American actor, musician, social activist, philanthropist and beloved father of four. Trulove’s buzz as a local celebrity caught a break in late 2007 when he appeared on the popular VH1 reality TV series, Love New York 2.
Shortly after, in early 2008, Trulove was inexplicably charged and wrongfully convicted of a crime he did not commit. His legal fight would soon be helmed by a robust appellate team of lawyers that exposed prosecutorial misconduct. After winning his appeal, aided by an amicus letter by the Innocence Project, Trulove’s conviction was overturned. He received a retrial, despite evidence proving he was an innocent man. Trulove was exonerated in his second trial and immediately released from prison after nearly seven years. In 2018 a civil jury found that Trulove was framed by two San Francisco police officers. He was awarded a $13.1 million dollar judgment, capping off Trulove’s 10 year fight for justice.
Trulove resumed his talent aspirations and in 2018 he landed a pivotal acting role in The Last Black Man in San Francisco (A24, Plan B). This highly celebrated independent film won two awards at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, including Best Director, US Drama. In fact, Rolling Stone called the film “an instant classic” and the LA Times proclaimed “newcomer Jamal Trulove excellent.” Currently, you will find Jamal’s latest role in action thriller “Deadlock” starring Bruce Willis and the anticipated star filled animation, “Pierre the Pigeon-Hawk.”
