For DaJuan Summers, the tattoo holds a certain power. It provides him solace and strength by reminding him of his roots. "It has my name on it," says his mother, Twana, a supermarket meat cutter who raised her three kids alone in Baltimore after her husband died when DaJuan was just 3. "And it has the names of [his sister] Regina and [brother] Malik. He says when things get tight, he grabs that tattoo."

IT'S LITERALLY BEEN another lifetime since Elmer Wingate donned a Poly football jersey. In the interim, Wingate has gone to college, served his country in the Korean War, played professional football, raised a family and become a successful businessman. The current Poly site, at Cold Spring Lane and Falls Road, wasn't even the building where Wingate wore the school colors and the mandatory ties. But after schools have physically moved and lives have been lived, there are some things that stay in the bloodstream.
