Ralph Gilmore: Father, Artist and ‘Mayor of Harlem’ (Circa 1/6/15)

Everyone loves a bit of nostalgia from time to time. I think at this point, most of us are aware of a widely used acronym on social media called, “TBT,” which stands for Throwback Thursday. Throwback Thursday is the name of a weekly social media posting trend or popularized hashtag that people from all over the world use online—specifically on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr, to share and look back fondly on some of their favorite memories—hence the “throwback” theme. With that being said, I want to share a proud moment of mine in which an article was written about me in the oldest Black newspaper in the country, The New York Amsterdam News.

When used for the right purposes, social media is such a powerful thing; however, you just can’t beat paper and ink! I was featured in the above article, courtesy of The New York Amsterdam News, which was beautifully written by NYC-based, Detroit-bred freelance writer/editor, Demetria Irwin. You can find my story up online on their website here: Ralph Gilmore: Father, Artist and ‘Mayor of Harlem.’

It’s truly a wonderful thing to be recognized for your talents, abilities, drive, hard work and simply believing in yourself that you’re capable of great achievements. I hope that you find the article insightful, honest, thought-provoking and inspiring. The secret ingredient is love. Share this post with your friends, family members and coworkers. I look forward to reading your comments, feedback or questions that you might have. Thanks again for stopping by.
