Excerpt from page 15:
Within our beloved Village of Westside Black Detroit, we graduated from high school after the end of World War II, just in time to be recruited, if male, into the armed forces, and upon honorable discharge, to continue on a road, much earlier determined by the internalized values and ambitions of our age group, that took us to college and university campuses in different parts of the country.
