Today In Black History: Happy Birthday Michael Jordan

Basketball legend Michael Jeffery Jordan was born today in 1963. Jordan played for the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards for 15 seasons. He grew up in Wilmington, North Carolina where he played baseball, football, and basketball. Ironically, when he first applied to the varsity team as a sophomore, he didn’t make it because of his height, a mere 5 ft. 10 in. Over that next summer though, he trained hard and grew by four inches … making the team during the next trials.

Jordan was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009 and is tremendously successful with product endorsements, television, movies and part-owner and head of basketball operations for the Charlotte Hornets; gaining 90% interest of the team in 2010.

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
