A Record-Breaker from the Projects Helps Kids Break Out of Poverty and Despair
Now 49, Beamon achieved those goals—he earned a degree from Adelphi University—and has spent his life helping inner-city children. For 15 years he has lived in Miami and worked for Metro-Dade County's Parks and Recreation Department, organizing track meets as well as art and dance lessons to try to persuade kids to look beyond sports: "You've got to make young people understand that role models are not only athletes but people around them, aunts, uncles, ministers." He has two daughters, Tameka, 22, and Deanna, 11, and last year married for a third time, to Milana Walter, a 40ish special-events producer In Atlanta, Beamon will be in the stands, watching the assault on his Olympic mark. "If it happens, it will happen," he says, but no one will ever take from him that "I had accomplished something for myself, my family and the country."
