The Author was born March, 1941 in a small town Southeast of Atlanta, Georgia. He graduated Valedictorian of his high school class, 1960, during the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement, and the same year that Charlayne Hunter-Gault and Hamilton Holmes enrolled at the University of Georgia, as its first black students.
He attended Savannah State University, Savannah, Georgia, during the time that "sit-in" demostrations were taking place at lunch-counters in the Southern States. Unable to secure financing for his Sophomore year, he transferred to Brooklyn College (CUNY),
where he was a student of the renowned, Dr. John Hope Franklin, who was, then, Chairman of the Department of History. He, also, attended the Bernard M. Baruch College in Manhattan. He received a Bachelor of Arts Degree, in Social Science from Washington State University, Pullman, Washington.
Although, a Teacher of Social Studies, the Author feels that he is best read as a Writer, and an advocate for Civil Rights. The most important of all Civil Rights, to African Americans, that of Enfranchisement, which is, yet, unfinished!
