"While growing up on Beechwood Street in South Memphis, we were blessed to drink from deep rivers of compassion. We were the heirs of hard-working people who shared their resources with each other. If we were hungry, we ate from each other’s table, and when we were sick, we cared for each other. My grandparents, Odie and Leroy Prewitt, were people with meager resources and uncommon generosity. They opened their hearts and homes to relatives and non-relatives in need of shelter or food. They did not think of what they gave as philanthropy because sharing was an act of reciprocity, in which both the giver and the receiver benefited.”
