Wendell Green will march 3 miles for African Americans who aspire to join his profession.
He will march for the young architects and designers he mentors, who want to live in Hampton Roads, make a living and raise families.
The 70-year-old African-American architect will march in solidarity with others who hope for a better future – one with equal opportunities for minorities and better opportunities than those he had.
“The biggest problem I have is people say minorities are always complaining,” said Green, a Virginia Beach resident who owns a firm in Chesapeake. “Well, guess what? It is not that people want to complain. They just want to feed their children, just like you do.”
