Founder’s Blog Essay & Discussion – Saturday, November 19 at 2:30 pm EST at

This is the first of a series of essays introducing the AAERO Founder’s Blog.  In January 2022 the African American Education & Research Organization (AAERO) and Melchor-Quick Meeting House (MQMH) merged to become AAERO at MQMH.  I founded these nonprofit organizations in 1999 and 2018, respectively.  This essay presents highlights and the aspects of my family legacy that I treasure.  (Photos follow.)  Many documents, photos, newspaper clippings, and memories will be shared digitally and in conversations in the near future. As you reflect upon your family legacy (and mine), consider the following:

  • What is “family?”
  • What legacies of your family do you hold, preserve, enhance, and pass on?
  • What is most important to you, as you consider your own contribution to family legacy?
