Happy Father’s Day

Brother Key

One of our best friends and neighbors here in Brooklyn, New York is Mr. Key. We call him Brother Key. He has been a person we’ve put our faith and trust on, for many years.

He is over 70 now, and is losing health, but still works so hard that is mind boggling. He is by profession a construction man, and is a strong believer of equality, peace and justice.

Brother Key marched in Alabama where he grew up in the 50’s. His extended family still lives there, and he goes at least once a year to visit them. He has fond memories.

He was a Vietnam soldier, and has many war stories to share. He is also an artist. He paints beautiful paintings.

Brother Key is my personal tribute to Black America.

Happy Father’s Day to you.

Brotherly,
