Wilmer Wise’s Mom

Wilmer Wise: She played the radio:-) She was the 9 year old smart ass kid’s escort to his summer music program

It hit me like a ton of bricks one day…….Mom grew up in the segregated South and here she was escorting this crazy trumpet playing kid around in groups that she would not have been in earlier. She never said a word to me about her feelings. I grew up being the only colored kid in the group………….we weren’t black in those days:-) Mom was a HERO!!!!
