Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
Bob White has written a very entertaining memoir depicting his life that began during the great depression, which encompasses a most embarrassing blight on American History, racial discrimination and blatant bigotry. He relives the childhood memories of a father who died too soon, a victim of alcoholism; a mother raising four children alone, on relief (welfare); eating half-rotten food, and wearing old, discarded clothes. After reading of his fun-filled, yet sad and heart rending years that Bob endured growing up in a small, segregated mid-western town, you want to stand and cheer when he finally overcomes the many obstacles a racially-divided society constantly threw in his path. He ultimately succeeds in receiving recognition while travelling world-wide as a singer with the renowned vocal group, The Platters. He has also appeared in numerous movies and television shows and received acclaim as an award-winning artist. One can only commend him for weathering this societal storm and emerging victorious with no recriminations towards anyone - only a sincere appreciation for his few accomplishments and the life God has made possible for him to now enjoy.
