A native of Cambridge, Massachusetts, Reverend Dr. Eugene S. Callender holds a BA from Boston University, a master of divinity from Westminster Theological Seminary, a master’s in theology from Union Seminary, a doctor of divinity from Knoxville College, and a juris doctor from New York Law School. He has taught at Columbia School of Business, New York University, The New School for Social Research, and CUNY York College in Queens. For over sixty years, his career has covered a broad span of social, political, and devotional activism, from serving as a long-time civil rights and community leader in Harlem to serving our nation on presidential commissions under five separate presidents. As head of his ministry, Dr. Callender has been described by the New York Daily News as one of our “contemporary superstars,” and by the New York Times as one of the twenty-six most outstanding clergy members in New York City. His recently published memoir is entitled Nobody Is a Nobody: The Story of a Harlem Ministry Hard at Work to Change America.
This auto-bio, by Dr. Callendar, relives the Harlem of the 50's, 60's, 70's, and for anyone who enjoyed that era of Harlem, this book, will enliven and add substance to your political, social and aesthetic memories of Harlem, (the way it used to be!)
This book is was very good because it was told by Mr. Callender, a real life Civil Rights hero. He spoke about his experiences during the Civil Rights Movement. While we think we know what happened, it's always good to see history through the eyes of pioneers who actually lived it.
This is an important book. I love to read biographies, but not just any biographies, they need to either have historical significance or they need to be uplifting. This book is both. He is an inspiration.
This book was a quick read and fascinating to learn about a man whom you thought you knew. Kudos to the authors for persevering through this project. A testament to the scripture, "To whom much is given, much is required".
