December 15, 2017 "My condolences to the Booker family I also am from Youngstown Ohio and never knew that he was from there and it was never taught in our schools and not even now the history of this great American who gave so much to our ancestry blueprint for Black people and American history.
He celebrated us in ways we would never have seen if he had not had the ministry of photography.
I was the same age as Emmett Till when he was murdered and saw his picture in Jet. I had many nightmares but the end result was it taught me not to hate but the hold my head up high with love knowing my self-worth and that I could give my best to our people in our society by the way I treat others and at the same time I am so grateful for Emmett Till and all others who lost their life that I now can live the life I love and even though the struggles remain.
They made a clear path for us to follow. God bless the memory of Mr. Booker and the legacy of his family continues both in his natural family and his ancestors of which I'm proud to be one and as a citizen of this great nation." - Dianna Gamble (Columbus, OH)
