I chose the words on this painting with careful intent. Many people call him Papa Gray, though he and I don’t really have that sort of relationship.
But the relationship he has, and has consistently cultivated over the years with others, becomes obvious if you hang around anywhere near him for any period of time.
Or really, his influence becomes irrefutable if you just hang around any black Mormons for any period of time.
The words I chose are Pioneer,
Black and Proud
and Moving Forward Together.
Thank you Darius
