I have spent over half of my life researching and telling the stories of my ancestors. My grandfather always encouraged my passions because he knew outside of our house I would not be exposed to the real stories,the stories of our people. He was the first person I ever interviewed and the first person to say his name to me "Gardner Luck". I have been walking in Gardner's footprints ever since ~Karice Luck-Brimmer
