Bio and Links
Bio Photo Atlanta, Georgia native saluting the contributions of known and unknown individuals, pacifically the fundamental role that African American's have played in the making of the American republic. Many of these known and unknown individuals broke barriers in the political, educational and entertainment arenas, as well as built up their communities, and achieved beyond what others deemed impossible. All saluted, from the famous to the obscure, deserve our gratitude, for their lives clearly demonstrate in some way-through perseverance, fortitude and hard work that people can overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles to fulfill their dreams and share their gifts with the world. Over the recent years I have learned and made some exciting discoveries about my ancestors. Find A Grave provides all of us a opportunity to learn about some of these individuals behind the struggles and triumphs that have helped shape the world in which we live. My hope is that more people will become more aware of the contributions that many of these individuals have made.

A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.

USA TODAY request: William Thompkins
Curtis -

I'm researching a story for USA TODAY on the African American soldiers in the Spanish-American war. I noticed you added a photo of William Thompkins (Medal of Honor recipient). I'm trying to get more information on Thompkins.

Would like to speak to you. Can you email me:

Thanks in advance.

RE: Ella Baker
I did a little research today, and I believe she may be at Ferncliff Cemetery. One of her biographies has a mention of this. Thank you so much!

I will call Ferncliff in the morning.
