Father to the Fatherless

December 8, 2017

June 1, 1972 is the day in my life that will live on as one of the most significant. Three weeks after my ninth birthday and a couple of days after my siblings birthdays my father, only 37 years old died of cancer. He was my hero, my champion, a boxer, a soldier and the one who taught me how to navigate a world that was not too favorable to people of color.
