Wow, it's going to another hot blazing day in Baltimore today. It seemed that this particular September day was steaming hot, unlike any other day. The end of a momentous summer was upon them. The leaves on the neighborhood trees were dying on the branches in every black Baltimore street in the city. Yet for 12 bold, dynamic men that week , that on an upcoming day something special would manifest itself. You see there was an appointment with destiny and whether either of these 12 young men knew it or not the dye had been cast and the ideal had blossomed by thought. They each would be involved in founding an organization that still stands to the very day. In addition, each of these 12 men would be forever memorized in the history books of this yet unknown organization.
