Comments from the author about writing:
I published eight academic books in the early phase of my 39-year career. The past few years, I have turned to fiction and biography. I am an intermittent writer, who writes in spurts. However, I am always reading fiction, priming my muse for the next catharsis. It is a wonderful new sensation, writing creatively, as opposed to the more formulaic academic writing I have done.
Literary awards received and date received:
- Runner-up, Robert F. Kennedy Annual Journalism Award, 1969, for "Ghost Town Vigilantes: The Racial Pallor of Cairo, Illinois," THE NATION, Dec. 22, 1969. This article is included in my 1972 Westminster Press (Philadelphia) book, RED, BROWN, AND BLACK DEMANDS FOR BETTER EDUCATION, a volume that is a very good read despite the unfortunate stilted title.
