We Still Leave a Legacy is a chapbook of verses written and dedicated in part to the many friends and family members that have transitioned either by way of HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-troubling issues. In this poetry book, Philip attempts to capture his own sense of hope, determination and remembrance. He wants people to not only hear his voice, but desperately never forget those voices of people that make "Legacy", possible.
Philip began to write "Legacy" some twenty-eight years ago as he commenced his volunteer work @AIDS Action Committee (AAC) of Massachusetts. At that time, Philip became the Chair of AAC's Bayard Rustin Community Breakfast Committee and served in that capacity for eight years. Philip became driven to praise the work of others who had gone before him. He was determined to live by the mantra; "We stand on their shoulders". Today, Philip is still a volunteer at AIDS Action Committee and also serves as a member in his twenty-eighth year on the Bayard Rustin Community Breakfast Committee.
