I must agree that Rev. Burston has been a major influence in my life. I remember when I joined the NAACP he had served as the President and moved on however whenever something was going on he was there speaking truth to power not afraid to speak out. Not only did he speak out but he put his money out. He was a man of his words. He always no matter where I seen him at a meeting, at his former store “Your Church Supply Store” or at a restaurant he always, I repeat always said words of encouragement to me. Behind every good man is a good woman, thank you Mrs. Burston. Because of Rev. Burston I am not afraid to speak truth to power. Thank you my friend.
