It has been a long road and I have a few more miles to go! The first step of my journey started as a freshman at West Georgia College four decades ago.
I have been accepted into the Department of History's Ph.D. program at Georgia State University. First and foremost I give thanks, honor, and praise to God who is the source of my life and on whom I will always depend. I will be forever grateful to the Department of African American Studies at Georgia State University for their guidance, encouragement, and support which made my journey academically rewarding.
When I anticipate what my future holds, I am confident that African American Studies has adequately supplied me with everything I will need.
I am anxious about the next phase of my academic journey but also eager to begin.
Again to the faculty and staff in African American Studies, thank you. Few people have had the privilege of being mentored by such wonderful, supportive and dedicated team of educators and professionals. You are the wind beneath my wings.
