My mom's braggin' again
My mom works at an elementary school and made this bulletin board for her students during Black History Month. It includes photos with biographies of famous and accomplished African Americans. So can someone tell me why she's included my younger brother and I (bottom, center), along with Dr. George Washington Carver, Muhammad Ali, Dr. Mae Jemison, Denzel Washington, Tiger Woods, Prince, and Clarence Thomas? Well, because she's a sweetie and truly believes in her boys (grown men) are just as accomplished as these others.
Explains why my three brother's and I grew up to believe in ourselves and our abilities. My brother, pictured, is Des Moines' first black high school head football coach. My other brother is an accomplished musician, teacher, actor (be sure to see his theater photo gallery). My youngest brother is an all around great guy and computer wiz.
