Book News Annotation:

Ballard recounts the arc of his life from his middle class childhood in the diverse neighborhood of Germantown, Pennsylvania in the 1930s, to his advocacy of minority students, teachers and programs in the City University system of New York in the mid 1970s. Among the experiences he chronicles are his struggle with racism in college and the military, his reaction to the segregation of the South during basic training, and the acceptance of Blacks while stationed in Paris and studying in Russia. Throughout he reveals his personal growth in the context of the broader cultural evolution of mid 20th century America. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
