As an interracial couple who have been together for over 30 years, the Adamses offer some very personal insights and experiences on race, history and opportunity in the United States.

    Dear Mark, What a wonderful interview; it is important we all share our history as a part of this monumental time. I am so blessed to see this day and to share it with my family, friends, and students. Mr. & Mrs. Short were generous to share their history with me as a young adult and it just reinforced my drive to see equality for all. Your parents are family to me, so you are. I am proud of your heart and your voice. I am confident of our country’s future is in better hands (-: Faith

    Marc –
    Great job on the video blogs. I have the honor of singing with your mom in choir. I can see why she is so proud of you. It has been a pleasure watching you grow up at LP. You have become such an outstanding young man. Keep up the great work.

    It was surprising to see your pic on the video. Last time I saw you, I think you might have been in High School. Wow! Your blog is good.
    Oh, yes…I attend LP & have briefly met your mother in different meetings there.
    Lots of luck in your future.
