To Dr. Cheryl D. Holmes-Miller. I may not have pursued the idea of Vocal if it weren't for her. When I first read her articles, "Black Designers: Missing in Action" and "Black Designers: Still Missing in Action," I new I had to get her opinion on this idea.
She helped me expand upon my idea, and told me that I better go out there and make it happen before someone else does. And I did. I am forever grateful.
