Dr. Lingeela L. Johnson is a native of Savannah, Georgia. At an early age, Dr. Johnson understood that life was indeed no crystal stair. Though his life has been filled with sacrifice and struggle, Dr. Johnson knew that he was peculiar and would one day do something extraordinary to change the world. The genesis began with Lingeela not being fond of his name. People throughout the community, school, and church would minimize pronouncing his name simply out of convenience of learning how to pronounce it correctly. This sparked the desire to change his name; however, because he had a wise mother, would not allow such a thing to transpire. The young Lingeela inquired of his mother to know the meaning of his name. His mother reminded him of what King Lemuel’s mother in Proverbs 31:1-9 reminded the young king about which was called his identity. Later on in life, an older cousin Sharon, would later confirm that Lingeela’s mother, Betty would walk around and recite audible his name and emphatically communicate, “He will be great someday.” Betty would also encourage Cousin Sharon to repeat his name phonetically, (Lin-gee-la La-e-sah). Lingeela would discover from his mother that his first name means “Psalms of David and the Prophet of Isaiah” and it was inspired by the miniseries “Roots” and the book comprised from Alex Hailey.
Another definition of Lingeela means, “a manager; a director.” La’Isa, his middle name is derived from Issa, meaning Jesus and together, La’Isa means “one who connects with women.” Lingeela La’Isa is also found in the Holy African Bible. Talk about the power of words, how they can shape your reality and destiny! As Dr. Johnson can recall, he communicated that he never felt like he ever fit into any space that he entered and in some spaces, did not feel welcomed. Different was a name to best describe how young Lingeela felt. His mother stressed the value of education, possessing a
strong-work ethic, taking responsibility for your actions, respecting yourself and others, and the quality of your life will be the result of the choices that you make are the lessons that stands out to Dr. Johnson this day. Once a great provider, the thirteen year old Lingeela, witnessed the residual effects of his mother getting hurt on the job, and as a result, would take an emotional toll on human growth and development. Due to the phase of life changes, thirteen year old Lingeela now had to own adult responsibilities in a child’s body. As a result of the type of governmental job that Lingeela’s mother held, he personal felt the burdens of harassment as evidence of being followed by unmarked vehicles, witnessing surveillance cameras set up strategically in his neighborhood, and phones tapped to monitor family conversations. Coupled with experiencing molestation at an early age, these dynamic events triggered more trauma in the personal life of a young teenager. As of 2022, Lingeela was informed from his younger sister, Availe, when was he was away at Valdosta State University, someone from the insurance company attempted to bombard their way into their apartment. However, due to a determined mother, was unable to
enter. The struggle of his mother fighting a governmental case for over eighteen years sparked a love of Sports Medicine and a Mental Health. As a result of Lingeela’s mother body breaking down, being followed by the government, fighting her governmental case for eighteen years suffering in her mental health before succumbing on June 17, 2009, the teenager now adult who witnessed all of these pathologies, made a vow to learn as much as he could to become an Advocate for those who felt they did not have a voice in this world. These are the greatest lessons that a mother can instill in their sons.
