Here’s the thing about Black legacy; it’s golden. When you are on the heels of your folks for any educational or business accomplishment, you follow their recipe for future endeavors. Mr. K. and I went to his reunion at Prairie View A&M University (PVAM) in Texas. A visit to Prairie View is a visit to his Aunt Irma Kendrick, a hallmark of legacy.
Aunt Irma and her husband, Griff, have ushered numerous kids through the halls of PVAM; they have witnessed Black excellence and turned out MD’s, Ph. D’s attorneys, engineers, and entrepreneurs. Beyond degrees, they were instrumental in building strength in character, and I witnessed many accomplished citizens come back to pay homage to the little woman who defined educational support for them.
