In this article, the author describes how he was born in 1954, just four months after the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision outlawed the "separate but equal" doctrine of school segregation. He discusses how that fact has shaped his life immeasurably. Beginning with entering the world in Tallahassee, Fla., where his father taught in the art department at Florida A&M University all the way to the present which involves him serving as the ninth president of Spelman College, the oldest historically Black college for women.
