From the Ebony and Jet magazines on the coffee table, to the pictures of Martin Luther King and Jesse Jackson on the wall, to the smell of Aunt Bessie’s sweet potato pie coming from the kitchen, Uncle Bobbie’s was a bastion of unapologetic Blackness.

Although Uncle Bobbie never had access to formal higher education, he was committed to lifelong learning. He read every paper, every magazine, and every book he could get his hands on. Uncle Bobbie used his knowledge to question every aspect of society in hopes of changing it for the better. And he challenged the rest of the family to do the same.
