Let's Strive For a Positive, Peaceful 2021
Corporal Freddie Stowers: A Memoir, Familial Past & Present is a book that teaches how valuable ancestry can be to both relatives and the surrounding community. Author Tonnie Stowers Jackson, niece of Corporal Freddie Stowers, details the journey to have a Commemorative Marker (once erected in his honor) restored, after finding it unearthed and propped against a tree, in a neighborhood park.
The efforts of Tonnie Stowers Jackson led to additional improvements made to the Sandy Springs Community Park by the county, in compliance with new ADA guidelines, and a Centennial Celebration commemorating the life of Cpl. Freddie Stowers by a diverse crowd, a century to the day, after his passing in WW1. Read the story of how a past, traditionally built on discrimination was somehow overcome by the persistence of a guiding senior, in the present.
As Sancho Education Group (SEG) strives to promote positive images of ethnic minorities, we learn that one person can inspire others to make a difference. The story of Cpl. Freddie Stowers, as one man who made a difference, inspires the lives of his descendants, who seem innately positioned to do the same.
