What are the chances that an orphaned 6 year old little Black boy could survive a childhood of institionalization and come out the other side with an Associates Degree and a successful business of his own? Antonio Harris was born HIV-free to a mother with AIDS from a father who died from the disease. As an only child his early childhood consisted of tending to the needs of his ailing mother. “Her house looked like Rite-Aid with all of the drugs on hand. She took a lot of meds, but between that and her faith in God, she’s still alive to this day.”At 6 years old he couldn’t spell his name, but he could make meals in the microwave, which was how they ate most days. At that tender age he played nurse to and looked after his mother.
