At the age of 17, DOC's father had an upset stomach and went to use the restroom in a "White Only" establishment in Florence, South Carolina. When he exited the restroom, he was met with force by police officers, arrested, and subsequently spent three days in South Carolina State Prison. Upon his release, it was at that moment he realized what his future would be; Herbert T. Monroe Jr decided to be an educator. His goal was to teach children to love each other regardless of their race, color, creed, religion, and sexual orientation. His goal was to ensure that his kids would never have to suffer the same racist or prejudiced behavior that he suffered growing up in the South. DOC's father became an elementary school teacher and principal in the state of Virginia and was well-loved by all.
