Daytona Beach author explores racism in America in new book
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Author Dr. Booker T. Williams Jr. joins us tonight to discuss his book on social issues, “The Ugly Color of Race in America.”
When the first colored man was elected to our country’s highest office in 2008, the grotesqueness of our society’s supposed progressive attitude toward race emerged distinctly and indelibly. This and other cases of blatant racism serve as the exigency for this timely book. Readers will join Dr. Williams Jr., who parlays his own racially charged experiences with salient moments in American history, to advance a powerful narrative and stimulate meaningful discourse on the subject of race and racism in America. 2016 is a year filled with the murder of unarmed black men and a myriade of excuses with no end in sight. How do we STOP THE MADDNESS?
Dr. Williams Jr. has served in the United States Marine Corps from 1971 to 1974. After serving his country, he attended Bethune-Cookman College/University, graduating in 1978 with a bachelor of science degree. He also graduated from St. Thomas University in Miami, Fla., in 1987 with a master of science degree. In 2011, Booker earned his doctor of education degree in organizational leadership. He is a member of Omega Psi Phi, Fraternity, Inc.
