Thank you, Kola
I've been blessed to have strong black women in my family. The pictures below are of my wife, my grandmother, my mother and my daughter. Four generations of black women, I didn't need to find role models, I lived with them. I had male role models as well but these women showed me how to be a good person, male or female. My grandmother showed me how to give love. She was the mother of 10. My mother showed me the importance of a women's voice in the house and how they express it. She continues to show me the rewards of having a belief in God. When I was locked up I called her one day for help and she told me that she had given it to God. She told me to pray. She's 84 and doing fine. I get to see my wife in the face of my daughter, they look so much alike.
