No doubt Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream of racial harmony, racial unity, and bringing blacks and whites closer together. In chapter one, “We Still Angry,” readers will see which of today’s civil rights leaders said, “Get ready, George Washington, there’s a new neighbor on the Potomac. Get ready Mr. Jefferson, there’s a new neighbor on the Potomac. Get ready Mr. Lincoln, there’s a new neighbor, and we (blacks) are all coming to help him move in. We brought our luggage, we brought our food. Guess who’s coming to dinner?”
Those divisive words were spoken at a dedication ceremony for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. monument on August 28, 2011. That cup should have been emptied decades ago, but today’s black African American leaders and spokespeople are diligent in efforts to keep it overflowing.

About the author:
Doug Saint Carter, born in Muskogee, Oklahoma, is the first born son of W. G. Ellsworth, Jr. and Hope Ellsworth. The family moved to Jacksonville, Florida, when Doug was nine years old. He graduated from Englewood High School and attended Jones College where he studied broadcast management, which led to a twenty five year career in radio and some television as an on air personality and management responsibilities. In 1998 he published his first book, described as a labor of love, about the great singer Jackie Wilson, known as Mr. Excitement. The title of the book, The Black Elvis-Jackie Wilson, created a great deal of racial controversy inspiring the author to become actively involved in efforts to improve race relations. With his new book, Black Americans In The 21st Century, those efforts continue today.
