I am an author and historian. I am very excited about my new book, "The Wawona Brotherhood: The San Jose State Campus Revolt."


Background Information

My book chronicles my experiences at San Jose State during the turbulent 60s through the early 70s. In my eight year quest to obtain my bachelor's degree, I battled mental illness and poverty. At one point, I was temporarily locked up in a mental health facility.

Despite these obstacles, I played a vital role in campus leadership. I successfully reorganized the campus governing process, which serves as the blueprint for San Jose State student government today. And I was on the Chancellor’s blue ribbon panel, which selected the successor to Dr. Robert Clark, who led San Jose State as its president for half a decade in the 60s.

I was on the winning campaign that elected James Edwards as the first black campus student body president in California. And I served as Edwards' treasurer during his administration. At the same time, I fought for civil rights and helped desegregate off-campus student housing. Thus, I was instrumental in establishing a student tenants' union for students on and off campus.

In my youth, I was an avid rock climber. I discuss all these experiences in my book, because they helped me cope with life.

Since my time at San Jose State as an undergraduate, I have been a community activist in San Jose, a Green Party state leader, and have run for public office.

I have successfully dealt with life's adversities – even overcoming homelessness while managing my bipolar disorder for forty years. I am now working on obtaining my third master's degree at San Jose State. I also have taught social science subjects in California community colleges in the last decade.

I strongly believe that you will find my new book, "The Wawona Brotherhood: The San Jose State Campus Revolt" very intriguing.
