Lanvester Jackson has always loved music. And while some people pick up the guitar or the drums, he’s always had a passion for another instrument. In the StoryCorps booth, Lanvester told his friend Arletta Brinson about how the organ shaped his childhood.
It was actually his father who got Lanvester that first organ. This story was recorded in partnership with Paradise Missionary Baptist Church, and the Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta’s StoryCorps booth.
