Lamar was a career Air Force pilot that eventually made the transition into NASA. Growing up in a small Georgia town, he knew how important it was for young people to see a successful black man leading space missions. He was an accomplished public speaker and hero long before his life was altered forever on New Year’s Day.
He was onboard the International Space Station when the event known as “The Skip” occurred. Five minutes vanished in the blink of an eye and when the world suddenly continued onward, Lamar was blessed with cosmic powers. The United States government quickly made the decision to treat him as a propaganda piece — but Lamar refused to bow down. He resigned his commission and became a full-time hero. He wants to inspire the world but many of his actions have won the hearts of mankind, while alienating many governments.
