Starkville, MS

A track star, nicknamed ‘winged feet’ for his prowess in his chosen sport — he worked in a small grocery store near Jackson State — I knew him from there –we were both high school athletes but at different schools. His death was a turning point in how I viewed the world and especially the world in Mississippi.
