Peggy Tatum’s Birthday Parade by Edith Berry

May 21, 2020

On the Road for TCP Magazine, I had to cover a story about Peggy Tatum, founder of TCP Magazine. I was asked by Dr. Donna Corbett of Amazing Grace Etiquette, that orchestrated this event, to capture those special moments via pictures and video. I had been unable to capture her Sweet 16th Anniversary scheduled on March 14, 2020, due to the pandemic crisis. So what can you do for someone that’s Sweet 16, and hasn’t been kissed with love and hugs? Do a drive by parade, with signs, balloons, and waves from the car. We had to be in grand style for such a phenomenal woman. I remained hidden in an undisclosed spot under a shaded tree until the set time, awaiting this grand moment!.

At the designated time of 1:30pm, May 15, 2020, the Mass choir was randomly scattered, and proceeded to the cul de sac. Peggy was serenaded by the illustrious TCP Magazine Mass Choir led by National Recording Artist and Stage Play Actor, Anthony Adeion Hill. We opened up with a Happy Birthday song, sung Stevie Wonder Style. We were scattered for social distancing on the front lawn, while family members, and dear friends wished her well, as they drove by in a processional parade fashion. Award winning Neo Soul gospel Recording Artist Cynthia Jones, gave a cheer by spelling out each letter of Peggy’s name. Peggy Tatum’s love for others has been: encouraging people, an enhancer in ministries of churches, helping artists, and business entrepreneurs to exceed their fullest potential, and a support system to Female Pastors to strive in being great leaders! Besides being a friend, wife, mother, and grandmother, Peggy is an advocate for community affairs as the publisher and founder of a faith-based publication on positive African American achievements. It is for these attributes, we salute her on her birthday May 15, 2020.
