📸 Meet Terry Crews and Ken Harvey, who both worked in Loudoun County as members of the 1995 Washington Redskins. While here, they collaborated on a creative project that became a business venture 📚: “In 1995, Ken Harvey and I were teammates on the NFL’s Washington Redskins. Ken came to me with the brilliant idea of a book he wrote for his two very young sons, Anthony and Marcus. The book was to be a first time reader, and feature the boys in an imaginative game of hide and seek. The idea itself, at the time, was groundbreaking. Two young African-American boys, imagining themselves as pilots, conductors, captains, and race car drivers was awesome, and greater still was the ideological notion that one person’s responsibility to look out for the other, even if it was just a fun game. The book he wrote, and I illustrated, was ‘Come Find Me.’” (📸: @terrycrews)
