In his memoir from South Boston to Cambridge, Otis L. Lee, Jr. traces his family history and highlights various personal and professional experiences: From his childhood/adolescence in Charlottesville, Virginia in the 1960's to the history/genealogy of the Lee family; From his trials in Chicago as an aspiring lawyer to his triumphs in Philadelphia and his return to the tranquility of his beloved Albemarle County. This is a story that involves courage, perseverance, business acumen and success, vividly described. Mr. Lee's story is a notable one expressing numerous philosophical insights from a variety of experiences.
Author Lee writes about one defining moment of his life, "When I attended Jefferson Elementary School in Charlottesville in 1960, I was selected to recite the poem "The Path" by Paul Lawrence Dunbar, the noted black poet. That poem captured the story of my life. I had no idea when I first learned it by memory and recited it many times before the class that it would later have such a direct and dramatic application to my life. I recited the words not knowing their true meaning back then, but I know what they mean now. Who would have imagined how appropriate they would be.”
It is indeed “passing strange,” Lee notes, how a poem learned and recited from memory by innocence can come to be reflective of the life of the declarant many years later. Lee cleaved "a path of his own," day after day, from Saturday to Saturday, solving problems, "thrusting the looming rocks aside" in the lives of his clients, and he lent a helping hand where he could.
