About the author, Gene Jones (g.m.jones) was raised in southeastern North Carolina, graduated in 1968 from Lumberton High School and is an army war veteran. A draftee, he entered the United States Army in 1969 and six months later was forced to fight in an unpopular war. After being discharged in 1973, he reenlisted into the Army in 1975. He retired from the Army in 1992. His military career took him " to Vietnam, Germany, Panama, and various stateside assignments. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke in 1994, at the ripe age of 43. Not being able to find work in his community, employment took him to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Iraq. As a child growing up in the rural South he experienced the White and Colored water fountains, bathrooms, and not being able to dine with the majority race. While living in public housing, he had seen the procession of the KKK shouting obscenities and blowing their horns as they navigated the streets of his neighborhood. He witnessed his father working at menial jobs and his mother riding in the back seat of her White employer's car going to and from work. After his Army career ended and being away from community, he found not much had changed for the betterment of Blacks. Disillusioned at the plight of the young Black males in the United States and his community, he shares his life experiences to encourage and motivate them to live up to their potential. Through life experiences he learned that a Black male must realize that he and only he control their faith and destiny. This is a book about his journey
