  Early in life, I heard America described as a melting pot, a place where all nationalities, ethnicities, religions, and trains of thought come together to form America, the Beautiful.  Later in life, our vision of a greater nation described America as a salad bowl of diversity.  With the salad...
  With the coming of the new school year, my family will embrace a few milestones.   My oldest daughter will be a senior at Clinton High School and preparing to embrace the college campus that God will bless her to attend.  Our next in line will begin her wonder years at Clinton Middle School.  Our...
  One of my prized possessions rests in Birmingham, Alabama. It is a 12 inch comic book rendition action figure of the Black Panther. I purchased it nearly twenty years ago when there was still a toy Mecca called KB Toys.   It was the perfect compliment to my collection of limited reprints of Black...
  As I have mentioned before, I had the marvelous privilege of attending a kindergarten that taught knowledge of self,  in addition to the fundamentals of reading, writing and arithmetic.  As strict as the school may appear through my commentary, we were allowed to be kids.

  It is truly refreshing to see the next level of community involvement and the rebuilding of the village in Clinton.   I group up in the village concept that it takes a village to raise the child. The village concept also teaches that the village takes care of the villagers.   The housing project...
  If my monthly articles are to reflect community consciousness, I truly hope the community is aware of a blessing from School District 56.  If you did not know, I am the proud father of four beautiful daughters who keep me and my wonderful wife busy.   Many residents often see us in a grocery...
  I have had the privilege to live in multiple communities.  I have worked as a member of a large Upstate municipality and I have worked closely with leadership on all levels.  I have come to know that there are many types of leaders and leadership styles.  Some leaders and their models of...
Growing up in Greenville, I had the opportunity to attend what may be considered a “nyeusi shule”, which means black school in Swahili.  The all African-American preschool/kindergarten taught me some very important lessons about knowledge-of-self.  Those life lessons would be valuable weapons in an...
