Leslie Pinkney, owner of R & S Opitcals located across the street from Progress Plaza Shopping Center.

There he was standing on the stage no more than 200 feet from the front door of my business. It was so surreal him standing there 10:30 that morning over looking a crowd of hundreds in Progress Plaza the first and oldest Black owned shopping plaza in the country. Where some other great men stood talking about Change. Leon Sullivan, Martin Luther King, Muhammad Ali. I felt so proud, proud to be black, proud to be one of the first business owner’s in my family trying to make a difference. Thinking how difficult a journey it is going to be for him to become and succeed as President of the United States. Relating his Path to mine, to be successful in my endeavors.
