Thanks Annette so much for sharing that story. I have heard Tavis on the Tom Joyner show and actually watched him on BET and never knew his history, just always thought he was a brilliant speaker, keeping you on the edge of your seat. Now I must get his book.

Thanks Again

I never knew what the driving force was behind Travis Smiley, but I'm glad he took a tragic situation and let it motivate him and not destroy him. I will definately read his book!

As usual, great article!
