E.E.O.C.

June 15, 2009 at 10:23 am | Posted in Full Circle with a Tale | 3 Comments

As a young man with an interest in doing something to make make an improvement in life, I began to emerge into action in the work place. At the same time the E. E. O. C. had been enacted and the Courts were demanding enforcement. Opposition was strong and I found myself being pressured to fight against the movement. At the same time I had been elected to my first small position of leadership as job steward.
It was at this time the long tenured all white staff were calling on me to help fight the enforcement of the E.E.O.C rules. The strength needed then, surely came from lesson I learned by the action of my mother in chapter seven of FULL CIRCLE WITH A TALE. At that moment a path was opened for me to slowly add my contribution to erase the injustice in the of field of employment.

    • Hello Floyd
      I welcome your review of my book . Having known you for so many years I am aware that our opinions differ on many issues, but with the respect we have for each other we are still great friends. The visit we had at Panera Bread was a great blending of our opinions, values and understanding. It has been a pleasure doing business with you for thirty years. I am honored by you purchasing, reading and commenting on my book……Howell
