Opinion: Letter to the Editor: Alexandria Icon Telling the Stories of African American Alexandrians

Ms. Bah wrote an article titled, “The Military Made My Life Better:Sergeant Donald L Taylor” that was published in the Alexandria Gazette on November 7, 2019. Ms. Bah did an excellent job of telling my dad’s story that captured his military service and his family life. She visited my dad and did a face to face interview with him. She called him to share what she planned to write, and when my dad asked her call my husband and I for additional input and comments there was no hesitation on her part.

Ms. Bah remains an important icon in Alexandria and a respected Virginia historian.

I am writing to thank you and Ms. Bah for educating and informing our community about the lives of African American Alexandrians, their stories, and accomplishments.

Yvette and Herbert Lewis
