Why Tom Lee Is A Hero:

On May 8, 1925 Tom Lee, a Black man who couldn't swim and with help from his trusty small wooden motor boat ZEV, saved 32 prominent white people from drowning in the mighty and unforgiving waters of the Mississippi River. 8 days later he was a guest of honor in the Rose Garden of The White House where he shook hands with U.S. Pres. Calvin Coolidge.

In spite of race relations in those polarizing times, Tom Lee was considered a hero by both the white & Black citizens of Memphis. For his heroism he was awarded a house as well as became the first Black hired by the city.

Real Talk With Tha Artivist interviews the proud descendants of Tom Lee, Sis. Charmeal & Bro. Eric Alexander, on their ancestors legacy as well as their efforts to make sure that others wont forget and hopefully become inspired by Tom Lees example of courage.
