Born in the 1950s in Atlanta GA, at Grady Memorial Hospital, I was one of the many “Grady babies” as we were referred to back in the day. I grew up in what is called the Old Fourth Ward in a neighborhood known as “Buttermilk Bottoms”. It was called that I learned, because people were so poor that many could not afford fresh milk or “sweet milk”. As a child I didn’t know we were poor, only remembering the happy go lucky days full of fun, warm springs and hot summers. I attend historical David T. Howard High School, one of the few high schools available to black kids in Atlanta in the 1940’s, the first was Booker T. Washington High. Going on to attend and graduate with a BS degree from Georgia State University in the 1970’s.
Born in the 50s in Newark NJ, but growing up in Youngstown, Ohio; I was the third child of six in a family full of love, and church was a must. I went on to graduate from Cheney high school after which I attended Youngstown State University. I moved to Atlanta, Georgia in the 80’s and began a new career in the medical field. It was here that I met my wonderful husband. I believe that God had this planned for me all the while. Bern was looking for me and I was looking for him, and we started this spiritual journey together.
