Enfield, North Carolina isn’t a large spot on the map, but for a young Larry Perkins, it was his whole world. Born to a sharecropper father and a mother who dreamed of bigger things, Larry’s childhood was tumultuous. In early child hood, his mother abandoned him and left to New York City to chase her dreams. Larry spent the first nine years of his life bouncing from family member to family member before landing in his father and stepmother’s home.
