Marque's creative journey has seen him contribute to groundbreaking projects that challenge norms and elevate storytelling in film and television.
Richardson currently stars on the Hulu / Onyx Collective comedy series Unprisoned opposite Kerry Washington and Delroy Lindo. Created and executive produced by Tracy Mc Millan, the series, inspired by her life, is about a messy but perfectionist relationship therapist and single mom (Washington) whose life is turned right-side up when her dad (Lindo) gets out of prison and moves in with her teenage son. Richardson plays Mal, the caseworker at the group home from which Eddie (Lindo) has been released after 16 years of prison.
Richardson portrayed Reggie Green on Netflix Original Series Dear White People. Based on the film of the same name, the show offers a mirror of post “post-racial” America. When the mirror shattered, with the murder of Jordan Edwards, Richardson and his cast members moved into action, establishing a memorial scholarship fund for a slain teen at the University he wanted to attend.
“We’re here.” was what Richardson and the cast said to the family. In a sense, that is also what the show says. Set on the campus of predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface, Dear White People offers both honesty and humor in its presentation of current issues. Richardson’s poignant portrayal of Green in a single episode directed by Oscar winner Barry Jenkins was hailed as one of the top episodes on television that year.

While pursuing a successful career, Richardson attended USC on a full scholarship from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation graduating with degrees in Public Policy, Planning, Management and Business.
