I will always remember the first time I met Dr. Benjamin Mays. It was an experience that I will always remember, l had the pleasure of meeting him during a wedding reception several years after his retirement as President of Morehouse College. Unfortunately, I matriculated at Morehouse College the year after Dr. Mays retired and did not have the opportunity of experiencing his mentoring firsthand. However, throughout my years at Morehouse, I developed a deep appreciation for Dr. Mays through his writings and speeches. His works and ideology have had a profound impact upon my life.
