Being active in the struggle for Civil Rights and involvement in the Movement started by the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. , allowed me to gage our progress. My involvement in Civil Rights started at 15 years of age, attending the 1963 March on Washington and marching with Dr. King. Equality, justice, peace, righteousness. Truth and brotherhood has increased in every area of my being.

There have been many influences; Nelson Mandela, Dr. king of course, The Dalia lama, Maya Angelou, Jesus The Christ. the Bible has been my main source of strength and Guidance.
