In the spring of 2016, I started a self funded project titled “ Capturing those before us”. This project is centered on people of color who have a specified experience during the Jim Crow era and/or history of slavery in their family. The objective is to advocate and educate on the behalf of everyday people such as service men, educators, religious leaders, teachers, community activist, allies, grandmothers, fathers, mothers, uncles, and many others who have contributed to shaping our great Country by the gift of resiliency during such a challenging time. I hope you enjoy the journey just as much as I have and will continue.
