Antioch University Los Angeles

I am returning to education after thirty years working as a private practice attorney, entertainment road manager and business entrepreneur. At Bridge, I have been teaching introductory philosophy and have also participated in classes on Civil Rights and History of African American Film. Previously, I taught Ancient Black History and Ancient African Religion at Long Bach State University.

Educational History

Los Angeles City College, Langston University, Oklahoma
BSL, California College of Law
JD California College of Law

Teaching Statement

To teach without considering origins is to take a partial approach to education. Our earliest ancestors noted the idiosyncrasies and consistencies of the animal world, as well as the solar, lunar and stellar rotations. They created tales and cosmologies about these phenomena and that became the basis of modern philosophy and religion.
