Dear Books of Soul Readers,
I was honored to be selected as one of the “100 black men” who provided a life vignette for Harvard Professor Charles Ogletree’s new book on race relations in America titled, “The Presumption of Guilt.” The book provides a balanced and studied perspective on how far we have come, and how far we have to go.
