Good evening. Good evening. Good evening it’s 4:00 PM. Stand up it’s count time, time for every man and woman to stand up and be counted. Welcome to another edition of Count Time podcast. I am brother LD Azobra. Thank you for joining us today.
Now is what we call the month that we all like to remember because of a young man by the name of Carter G. Woodson who years ago introduced us what we now call Black History Month. So this is a time that we reverence, support, bring forth knowledge, information, history about those who came before us and those who are still here, who are and still doing great and wonderful things in our community. And we are fortunate here today to have just a man here who have stood for what he believed and believed what he has stood for and have fought the good fight and steady fighting. Yes. We have here a dear friend, a brother, a community leader, Dr. Press Robinson. Welcome to Count Time.
Thank you. Great to be here.
