  1. Rev. Roger & Dr. Cynthia Hopson,
    A most impressive interview. His life as a young person is paradigmatic of generations. With the guidance of a caring family a positive change happened. As stated in the documentary Colon in Black & White, “What you start out as is not necessarily what you become.” He received B.S. & M.D. degrees, became a Teacher,
    Pastor, District Superintendent, Executive Assistant to the Bishop,
    Loving Husband & Father and more. A marvelous journey from here to there.
