Book and Screenplay Writer-
James Francis Johnson
THE EDUCATION OF A WHITE BOY
My book is part autobiography, part biographies of the great figures in African American History and Literature, and part meditations on other subjects. Of course I would prefer that people bought the book, but, in this day and age of free content, that is like asking a hog farmer to purchase his bacon at the supermarket.

How I learned about Martin Luther King and then wrote my findings in Three Acts...
How I learned from James Baldwin these words to live by: "I want to be an honest man and a good writer..."
How I learned to move past radical politics to become a well-read cosmopolitan man in Harvard Square...
