Publisher's Summary

Surviving in Black Skin is an illuminating virtual journey within the black skin of the author whose life was abruptly uprooted from his southern home in Mobile, Alabama, and transplanted onto the western coast of Los Angeles, California. The listener learns that his family's abrupt transplantation was part of a much larger southern exodus of people in black skins in reaction to the tortuous lynching of a 14-year-old kid named Emmitt Till. It's quite a paradox that the continued (6500 between 1865 and 1950), like the late George Floyd, didn't limit the murders to the South.

The consequence of the covert and overt racism Webster experienced while living through the paradox of racial integration in high school, college, the Navy, as well as his workplace, provides the listener with Webster's vision of the institutionalized xenophobia that exploded into the Watts Rebellion of 1965. Webster introduces the listener to the launching of Black Student Unions, the Black Panthers, the Congress of Racial Equality, and some of their leaders such as Malcolm X, Huey Newton, Stokely Carmichael, Angela Davi, and the non-violent crusade of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.. The author culminates these encounters by taking the listener out of the United States of America, to Africa's Egypt only to discover his great ancestry; Pharaohs in Black Skins who were the original authors of the first written language, literally the very African birth of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

The reality that an advanced civilization of people of black skin were the authors of the civilization of Ancient Egypt has not only been dismissed, but vehemently condemned by conventional Egyptologists, archaeologists, and even the present Arabian Egyptian government.
