Thanks so much for reading, sharing and commenting on the "I Am Bertie Black History" series!! Your feedback was amazing for an outstanding group of honorees. Thanks also to local newspaper outlets for their support.
As Black History is truly all year, there may be some interviews and tributes coming throughout the year. I certainly want to highlight my grandfathers, Willie Edward "Son" Cherry and Leslie Cherry for their amazing accomplishments and business savvy that have gone without just recognition. This series always takes me back to the old African proverb that was the basis for an early TCV post, "Tell Your Story." The proverb was, "Until the lion learns how to write, every story will glorify the hunter." Well, these honorees are here, and they are telling their story. I am grateful that they have allowed TCV to share a snippet of their story in writing. To God be the glory!!
Peace and Blessings,
