|Bio and Links|
Atlanta, Georgia native saluting the contributions of known and unknown individuals, pacifically the fundamental role that African American's have played in the making of the American republic. Many of these known and unknown individuals broke barriers in the political, educational and entertainment arenas, as well as built up their communities, and achieved beyond what others deemed impossible. All saluted, from the famous to the obscure, deserve our gratitude, for their lives clearly demonstrate in some way-through perseverance, fortitude and hard work that people can overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles to fulfill their dreams and share their gifts with the world. Over the recent years I have learned and made some exciting discoveries about my ancestors. Find A Grave provides all of us a opportunity to learn about some of these individuals behind the struggles and triumphs that have helped shape the world in which we live. My hope is that more people will become more aware of the contributions that many of these individuals have made.|
"Iíve only just a minute,
Only sixty seconds in it.
Forced upon me, canít refuse it,
Didnít seek it, didnít choose it,
But itís up to me to use it.
I must suffer if I lose it,
Give an account if I abuse it,
Just a tiny little minute,
But eternity is in it."
-Dr. Benjamin E. Mays
ďI shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.Ē
"What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal."
👍🏾Thank you to everyone who have left tokens and kind words of rememberance for my memorials, especially my loved ones. Also, a special thank you to those who have sponsored memorials of my deceased relatives. God bless!

Thanks so much!!!
|Ben Martinez||Curtis Jackson|
What a wonderful biography. Would it be possible to insert paragraph breaks so as to make by easier to read?
By dong so, perhaps more people will read and understand the contributions this unique man made to humanity.
Kindest regards, Ben Martinez.

You requested a grave photo at Memorial Park Cemetery in Memphis. This cemetery is quite large and without a plot location it is near impossible to just stumble upon a requested grave. I am happy to try to fulfill your request though if you will contact the office and ask for the plot location.Just let me know, or post the plot on the memorial and I will try to fulfill it in the near future The office can be reached at (901) 767-8930

|Deleon Todd||Memorial for James Forten, Sr.|
Mr. Jackson: Part of the memorial you created says, "During Forten's life time he spent over half of his $300.00 fortune to finance different crusades for abolitionists'...". I'm wondering if "$300.00" should've read "$300,000"? Overall great bio. Thanks for the historical insight.
|In memory of Bo and Chris||RE: Happy Birthday! 🎂|
Thank you so much!!! Cecile
