Albert grew up in one of the poorest communities in Jackson, MS. As a teen, he did not allow the alcohol
and drug infested streets of Georgetown (one of the most dangerous neighborhoods) to claim him. Despite
limited resources he worked his way through college. Albert graduated with a bachelor’s degree but limited
opportunities which forced him to leave Jackson. Although he successfully became one of the top computer
analyst at Fermi Laboratory in Batavia Illinois, he later gave up the position, the prestige, and the pay to
move back to Jackson to start the Genesis and Light Center. For the past 20 plus years, he has been a
voice for the voiceless, given help to the helpless, defended the needy, and he has encouraged the
discouraged. Albert credits any level of success he has obtained to all those who sowed into him while
growing up, including his family and close friends, but especially
to God – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
