What We Know Now featuring environmental chemist, photographer, art collector, Patric Gregory McCoy

I believe everyone not only has a story but is a story. Each of our stories evolves as a journey, not a destination, a process, not an event. We learn as we become emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically. Only when we look back and remember can we understand.

This week, we look into the rearview mirror of the eternity of one intelligent,  evolving, creative story. He has discovered that life works for him because he knows everything he manifests on the outside results from who he has become on the inside.

In the beginning chapters, Patric Gregory McCoy was born in Chicago, Illinois, on December 20, 1946. McCoy graduated as class valedictorian from Englewood High School in Chicago in 1964. He received his B.A. in chemistry in 1969 from the University of Chicago. In 1972, McCoy was employed as the chief chemist for the Gary, Indiana, Air Pollution Control Department while taking part-time graduate courses. He received his M.A. in environmental science from Governors State University in 1979. McCoy retired from the EPA in 2006 after serving ten years as a national expert on air pollution control measures for the petroleum refining industry.

However, the current chapter of Patric’s story finds him immersed in his passion for art, nurtured in his childhood home in Chicago, surrounded by art and books. Patric’s art collection contains over one thousand paintings, drawings, sculptures, collages, and assemblages of African-American art. He co-founded Diasporal Rhythms in 2003. Diasporal Rhythms is a not-for-profit arts organization that promotes the collection of artworks by living artists of African descent. He is a legacy, mentoring the next generations to live in the now, not be afraid to make mistakes, and walk in their worthiness. His favorite quote is “Stop Trying, Just Do”!

The best part of this episode is Patric’s outstanding storytelling style. Get comfortable, learn, and be inspired. Then, share and subscribe.
