Bio

Taurean Blacque is an American actor best known for his starring role as Detective Neal Washington on the police procedural television series Hill Street Blues, from 1981-1987.

A long-time resident of Atlanta, Georgia, he has performed in several productions at the Alliance Theatre of Atlanta.

Among his notable performances have been in the James Baldwin play The Amen Corner opposite Carol Mitchell-leon, Elizabeth Omilami and Crystal R. Fox; and as Shealy in the August Wilson play Jitney opposite such notables as John Lawhorn, John Beasley, Anthony Chisholm and Charles Canada.

Both productions were directed by then-Alliance Artistic Director Kenny Leon.

Noted for his involvement in the community as well, Blacque, who has two adult biological sons, adopted nine children in the late 1980s.

A deeply spiritual man, he adopted the name Taurean from his astrological sign of Taurus and the name Blacque from his race.
