The Ochelli Effect 8-5-2019 David Beito Ph.D. and Linda Beito PhD
TRM Howard Part Two
On a Monday night Ochelli Effect we revisited the remarkable African American historical figure Theodore Roosevelt Mason “T. R. M.” Howard (March 4, 1908 – May 1, 1976).
This time we are pleased to be able to present both authors of the book T. R. M. Howard: Doctor, Entrepreneur, Civil Rights Pioneer.
The striking contrast between the exigent dynamic person and nearly uncontemplated impact of TRM Howard’s life and times in literature that often focuses on many other leaders in African American history make this book a must-read for anyone who wishes to fully appreciate the progress and lack-there-of regarding American Civil Rights in the 20th century. It has the added benefit of being an inspirational and atypical story of a man confronted with hostile circumstances, and his work ethics which caused to incite change by confronting adversity with intelligence and conviction.
