1972-1975- US Department of Agriculture. Conducted investigations under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prevent discrimination in Federally-assisted programs. Duke University graduate (BA, 1972), father of two, grandfather of three.
Since I left my Federal career in civil rights enforcement, research, reporting, and Congressional liaison, I have volunteered on a variety of social and environmental justice projects through my Unitarian fellowship. I have been affiliated with Penn Center in various capacities in recent years and, currently, I serve on the Board of Trustees there. My life's work and my personal life compelled me to write Swift Currents, to help lift the level of tolerance and good will between the races. I hope that this story will help more young people and their parents come to a greater understanding of our shared racial history and abandon the inherited prejudice of generations.
