We went and visited Black and Noble, a bookstore that sells items from predominately black authors. It is located at
While leaving we met a man on his way to a Drug and Alcohol program and had a talk with him while walking to campus. He explained his life, the ups and downs, and how he has changed certain facets of it. This male, Eric, started his life back up by getting a job and is now in the process of saving money to buy himself a car so he doesn’t have to walk or take the C bus. He told us a descriptive story of how he used to sell drugs and then became an addict himself. Eric could not keep up with his lifestyle while involved with drugs and began to lose items and family members one by one. He told us a self evaluation took place when he was on the verge of becoming homeless and this is ultimately is the reason as to why he is turning his life around. We broke ways from Eric’s compelling story once we arrived back on campus. He continued on to his Drug and Alcohol program.
