This project is dedicated in the memory of Waymond Pearson. Waymond was a tough All-City football player with a heart so big he once gave his shoes to a homeless man and walked to his home barefoot. Waymond was tragically murdered in September 2003 as he was coming to the aid of his friend. Waymond’s mother, Bernadette Williams, chief interpreter for the Boston African-American National Historical Site/Black Heritage Trail from the beginning has been an important contributor to the vision and application of this project.
Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)
