Are you searching for books to read for Black History Month? Check out our memoir, Accidental Activist: Justice for the Groveland Four, available in e-book, paperback and audio-book. This inspirational, uplifting story explores a young man's four-year journey to right a terrible wrong and bring peace to four families. The Groveland Four were falsely accused of a heinous crime in the Jim Crow South and their families would spend the next seventy years trying to clear their names.
This book will take you through my incredible four-year quest for
justice for The Groveland Four and teach you how to pursue your own causes,
whatever they may be. It is a primer for positive action, a journey through
Florida's past as well as its future. Some of the things you will learn:
everything takes more time than you think, nothing ever goes according to plan,
help can come from unexpected places, time is on your side, everyone is
connected to everyone else, you can reach your tipping point for success and
not even realize it, your goals can change along the way, and flexibility is
key. Let's get started, shall we?
