88 Year Old Grandfather and Great Great Grandfather Video | Wordless Wednesday

Share this article :

This week's Wordless Wednesday is a video of my Grandfather :)

This is my 88 year old Grandfather speaking on behalf of his friend that was honored last week: African-American photographer Charles "Teenie" Harris, who was born in 1908 and died in 1998. Both very accomplished men through the generations. I think that he did a great job!

@Sarah - I appreciate your comment, Sarah. He has done so much in his life that even impressed others of his generation(s). It was a situation of "all my friends are dead" up until a few years ago when he started getting honored by programs and then these past few interviews. It makes him feel better that he is still contributing and still connected to friends that he has lost.
