by Larry Smith
Racial discrimination is something Larry Smith is all too familiar with. The odds were against him since birth simply because he is an African-American. Racism held him back in every area of his life, from high school and collegiate athletics to his time spent in the Air Force.
Because of his determination and unfaltering desire to succeed, Larry Smith overcame many trials and tribulations and used his heartbreak as fuel to reach his goals. His memoir is a tribute to the definition of the human spirits ability to overcome insurmountable odds and achieve the American dream, no matter ones race, creed, or social standing.About the Author
