Cornelius Brown was one of the first black sheriffs in St. Paul. He was a worker in the community and he was my oldest brother. Because of his being black and working with the different organizations, he added to the community and helped people get to want to take jobs that they wouldn't have otherwise. He encouraged people to look for jobs. He was a member of Pilgrim Baptist Church.
