“The purpose of Black Carpenter is to create a tool box of essential life skills for the next generation. I had the great fortune of being born into a family with strong values who gave me the courage to follow my dreams and reach for the stars. My mother and father instilled in me a sense of purpose not defined by today’s street obsession with swag, cars or cribs. Black Carpenter is as much their message of hope, perseverance and achievement for young people, as it is mine.”
-- Brian White
