(Carl Rowan, who was a firsthand witness to and participant in past major national events, answered questions here that had haunted the American nation. Some of these questions that are addressed are: Did the FBI expedite the death of Martin Luther King Jr.? Why did John F. Kennedy go to Dallas when he knew the trip was perilous? Why did Lyndon Johnson continue the Vietnam War when, as he told the author, he suspected that his intelligence reports were phony? And why did the nation's capital tolerate the corrupt administration of Mayor Marion Barry? Also in this hard-hitting, controversial memoir, Rowan reveals the fascinating story of how he rose from abject poverty to a life at the forefront of power and social change as an award-winning syndicated columnist, a panelist, and the host of his own daily national syndicated radio show. In addition, his personal account of a daring experiment to integrate the military is eye-opening and scathing. After serving in the Navy, Rowan became one of the first black reporters employed by a major daily newspaper enabling him to cover the civil rights movement and the coveted assignment of covering the United Nations crises over the Suez Canal war. A powerful, unique insider account of America's history of racial change and portraits of influential figures.)
