Last year Rob Ingram joined the Skanner News as a blogger/columnist. Although he was very busy and his many responsibilities made it hard for him to write as often as he wanted, his columns touched on burning issues in our community. So for those who want to carry forward a little more of the wisdom he left us, here he is: Rob Ingram In His Own Words.
Yashanee: Rob reflects on the tragic disappearance of Yashanee Vaughn. If Parrish Bennette indeed ended Yashanee's life then we have to find out why.

Leadership: Rob revisits the advice to stay in your own lane.

Caring: Rob tells youth that the adults in their lives care more than they know.
Reading: Black children are not reading. That's just one reason why all of us – especially parents- must read.
