Black History Month: Victor Pinkney Jr.

Victor Pinkney Jr.

318 Infused Cigar Lounge and Infused Bar and Grill have been open for approximately 3 years. They are the brain child of Dr. Kevin Carter, Courtney Banks , and myself. I currently serve as a Lieutenant at the Natchitoches Police Department where I have worked for the last 14 years from patrol division, to juvenile division, to the high tech crime unit where I specialized in cell phone forensics. I owe my success to my upbringing in Winnfield, LA. Many male and female mentors in my life, my beautiful wife Felicia Pinkney, but most of all my grandfather Henry Lewis Jr., who instilled knowledge and what it means to be a man in me. I’m a member of King Solomon #81 Masonic Chapter, Winnfield, LA. Also S.A.C.S. (Shreveport Afro-American Cigar Society).
