Keynote address with Tavares Stephens at Rev. Lowery’s 97th Birthday
On August 18, 2019, our family celebrated a milestone when Rev. Lowery baptized Gregory and Anaya in his home. Moments before the ceremony, his daughters Cheryl, Karen, and Yvonne, invited me to tie his tie. I love this man and the Lowery family. They are the epitome of Black Excellence!
