14 Most Inspiring Black Couples (2014 Edition)
9. BILL & SYLVIA LUCAS
THE LEGACY KEEPERS (PART 2)
On any given day you might find Bill Lucas moving about the community of Macon, GA finding ways to improve the lives of the people around him. His wife Sylvia is also dedicated to helping others in her career as a nurse. The couple has been married for 40 years. Their middle daughter, Melanie and her husband David also made #8 on the BLF 14 list currently celebrating 21 years of marriage. And their oldest daughter has been married 26 years.
But the trend of marriage does not end with 2 two generations. Bill’s parents have been married a whopping 69 years and Sylvia’s parents celebrated 37 years of wedded bliss before her mother sadly passed away.
At BLF, we don’t just believe in Black Love, we believe in teaching, training and supporting individuals to sustain Black marriage. I think we have a lot to learn from the Lucas’ legacy.
