Above: KPBS celebrates cultural diversity in partnership with Union Bank by honoring Martha and Theophilus Logan during Black History Month 2011.

Martha R. (nee Nash) Logan was taught to focus on the needs of others by her mother and grandmother after the death of her father when she was a baby. Ms. Logan recognized a great need for legal counseling in her San Diego community, earned her Juris Doctor degree and in 1976, began practicing law with an emphasis on protecting senior citizens, and their assets, through estate planning and personal counseling. Ms. Logan is also a 60 year member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., and has been an integral part of its local service programs for over 30 years.

Theophilus Logan has devoted his life to helping others. After serving in the United States Army for 20 years, Mr. Logan turned to his passion for real estate, helping buyers achieve what may sometimes seem an impossible dream of owning a home. Mr. Logan established Logan Real Estate in 1962 and in 1978, became the first African American president of the San Diego Board of Realtors. When he retired, his office became a landmark in the southeast community, where residents could seek advice and guidance regarding buying, selling and investing in real estate.
