Willa Oliver was the most wonderful teacher of my youth. How ironic that the woman who guided this Jewish boy in the 1960s South Bronx more than any other was a Black woman. I have never forgotten her and would visit her at PS 28 in the Bronx until she retired.
Dear Walter, Marcia and Family. Al and I send prayers and condolences to you. May your beautiful Mom Rest in Peace.
