An Angel on a Mission

Roberto Clemente: Afro-Boricua hero

His eyes towards the heavens in this photo,
maybe Roberto Clemente saw his final destination.
The Hall fo Fame baseball player died
while attempting a humanitarian air lift of several tons
of supplies for Nicaragua's earthquake victims in 1972.

  1. O man! I first learned about him on NPR on my way to work. I can only imagine his struggles in this country being black and plus the language barrier, gosh America was a lot tougher back then!

    And how handsome!

    I have a tremendous amount of respect for selfless people.
