Dear Friends:

Keeping the Promise: Errol Franklin

Email Twitter Facebook MySpace Stumble Upon Digg | More |

From an early age, Errol Franklin and his four older sisters have learned the value of discipline, hard work and family in their Harlem home. Television, computer games and other distractions are off limits during the week, and allowed on weekends only after homework is completed. The family sits down for dinner together every night, sharing progress, laughter and home-cooked meals.
