Having set aside a variety of entrepreneurial ventures to serve as president of the Canada Toronto Mission at the age of forty-five, he then accepted a call to serve in the First Quorum of the Seventy two years later, in 1976, and thus never ended up returning to the...

Born into generational poverty within a system that was not designed for the success of Black men, most of his options led to dead ends.
