Thank you. This bio was very interesting. Would enjoy sitting in Lodge and then having coffee with this Brother. Would enjoy reading more bios.
I am from North Carolina and I graduated from the Washington Urban League Word Processing Training Center back in the 80’s. Mr. Evans was the Director and I was the recipient of the Director’s Award. There were 30 of us that graduated from this program. I have always had a respect for Mr. Evans. He was a very smart man and I have often wondered where he was and how he was doing.
I am very pleased to know and discuss topics with Brother Tehuti Evans frequently and I assure you the bio here is only 1 percent of who Tehuti really is and knows.
