Cover of the Robertson book
Mr. William B. Robertson will not get to hold the book in which he tells his life story, but I feel that he is smiling down on its release, scheduled for February 22, 2022. It is Black History Month, no better time to showcase his contributions to and ideas about America.
How I miss our telephone conversations with loud discussions about using this word or that one, his laughter, and his advice about so many things.
His life and story both inspire and provide a practical guide to unity in our great country as well as a reminder that “liberty and justice for all” is not yet available. He spoke for the unheard voices, poor people and minorities, I am happy that his voice will be heard through his book. His hope (and mine) is that every school library gets a copy!
