Byron Johnson was an exceptional man who lived during a fascinating time. He was the grandson of a slave who overcame financial and social obstacles on his way to a college degree and a life devoted to education and to making the world a better place. Byron spent his life striving for greatness, both athletically and intellectually, and striving to instill it in others. He was a pioneer, paving the way for African Americans to enjoy equal rights and equal opportunities. Without Negro Leaguers like Byron demonstrating the extent of their skills, Major League Baseball would have taken much longer to integrate. Without educators like Byron, our nation's young people would not have had desperately needed role models to mold their characters and challenge their intellects. I am grateful for his inspiring life. President Bill Clinton Show more Show less
