Recently retired, Kevin Jenkins loves cruising through life. He loves cruising--spending a week or more on the ocean. His only regret is that he didn't start ocean cruising sooner.

He's also found it easier to cruise through life with Christ at his side. He shares a story that many a former non-believer can relate to in terms of his view of church and pastors before he became a born again Christian.

The son of a Contract Compliance Specialist who enforced Affirmative Action laws, Kevin grew up fully understanding the value of such programs as they were originally intended. This made him a much-respected manager across multiple industries, from manager at multiple Black-owned McDonald's restaurants in the Baltimore area to the funeral services industry.

His experience with a police officer as Kevin drove into work one weekday, points to the reason for the podcast.

By the way, you can hear my interview with his son, Courtney Jenkins in the previous episode. Life father, like son is certainly true in this case.

Kevin's favorite book is The Black History of The White House.

Kevin's favorite songs:  Deliver Me by Le/Andria Johnson, I Love You Jesus by Lamar Campbell and Keep Your Head to the Sky by Earth, Wind and Fire.
