Man, it feels good to be home!  I have a lot to say, so much that it will not be captured in this month’s Open Letter. But let me say this:  Today our community needs you more than ever.  We need to redouble our efforts to strengthen our community.  We need to redouble our efforts to pour success into the lives of the next generation.    We need to make home ownership a priority.  We need to commit to supporting our black elected officials.  There is so much that needs to be done. For my part, I will do my best to utilize this platform to encourage greatness. 


One such elected official I wholeheartedly endorse is Commissioner Lawrence Weekly, an individual I have known for the better part of a decade.  While assembling this edition, I was called to conduct an interview with the Commissioner. Much to my surprise, I found myself captivated by his story.  Please take a moment to review the article and explore its interactive features to learn more about one of our community’s strongest advocates.


This publication would not be possible without advertising support, an amazing photographer (Marty Frierson); an extraordinary editor (Candice Abraham); and an exemplary team of contributing writers (Rosalind Brooks, Dr. Neville Campbell, Dr. Gerald Curry, Dr. Robert E. Fowler, Dr. Frantonia Pollins, and Greg Deville); our sales associates (Asha Jones and Kelcey West); and you, the reader. Can we make an impact on our community? The answer is self-evident.  We are a testament to what happens when a community locks arms and works towards a common goal.
