Gerald Hector welcomes Ambassador Andrew Young to "It's Easy Son"
This week Gerald Hector welcomes Ambassador Andrew Young to "It's Easy Son." A civil rights leader and American icon, a former pastor, a former mayor of the city of Atlanta and a former Ambassador to the United Nations, Dr. Young shares his journey from his early childhood growing up in New Orleans.
In a reflective posture he shares some of his life's turning points, including the harsh conversation he had with a third grade classmate when he was in his junior year at Howard University that reminded him of the mantle that had been placed on him to carry. We also get a glimpse into his early life lessons from his father and "the talk" that most African American families are accustomed to giving their children. Listen in and hear about his mountain top experience that shaped his life and purpose where he continues to live "one day at a time."
This extensive interview is longer than the usual one hour discussion, but given the pearls of wisdom, his unique perspectives on a host of issues, and his pastoral closing with words of encouragement and wisdom, we are bringing it to you in its entirety. Tune in and be blessed to hear a journey that was,and still is, pregnant with purpose for a calling that is bigger than mere human eyes can see.
