Dr. Blynd seems to be an enigma even unto himself. He was born is Syracuse, New York and was raised in Orangeburg, S.C. He led a lively childhood filled with a loving family, extreme sports (before their was a word for it, like friendly nocturnal BB-gun wars, where you pick friends for their shooting ability and athletic dexterity, like you would a pickup basketball game), Black-empowerment movements, social and economic segregation, Boy Scouts (one of two all-Black troops in the State), fishing in lakes and ponds, red-light funk-a-thons (parties) hosted by the “Kick-up Crew,” skeet shooting, extreme diving (don’t ask him, his Mom is still around), and all of the aesthetic flavor of growing up on a HBCU (Historically Black College & University), South Carolina State University and going to Felton Laboratory School (1st through 6th grades) located smack-dab in the middle of the University. He was raised (loved, chastised and praised) by two extraordinary and unconditionally loving Black academicians (mother, a retired literature professor, and his now-deceased father, a Dean of Agriculture at SCSU). Dr. Blynd was given guided yet unbounded room for exploration (physical, mental, nonsensical, spiritual) and he exercised and leveraged the leeway to its fullest extent.
