Published by AuthorHouseBooks
Generations is a book about the author’s search for his ancestors. The book traces the author’s genealogy back through slavery. As the author states; we cannot possibly know ourselves, let alone know where we are going until we are willing to first take the time to learn from where, and from whom we have come.

Like many, the author grew up attending public schools and hating history. However, as he matured, a paradigm shift in his thoughts concerning history occurred. Through this book, the author inspires and encourages others to understand the importance of the past, in particular, their own. But more importantly is the author’s desire to get readers to understand society’s critical need to learn from our ancestors through knowledge of what they got wrong, and to gain strength and hope from the things they did right.
