Notes

This story is about the emergence of the black people and the personal struggle of a young negro. Julian Williams, first black Congressman of the United States is talking to his son, who has just returned from school and has asked about slavery. He tells him of the torment of the black people, how they were brought to this country and sold as slaves. He tells him of his own personal struggle through life. Twenty years ago when Julian was eighteen he lived in the slums of Macon, Georgia. Tired of the day to day torment, he and his family decided to move north to what they believed to be the Promised Land. Instead, Julian finds himself living in a ghetto apartment with no money and no job. Julian sees the only way to get ahead is to get an education. He then decides to study law and help the black people. After becoming a lawyer, Julian devotes his life to the advancement of the black people, working to obtain grants from the government to build homes, schools, drug rehabilitation centers and recreation areas in the ghetto. He becomes a prominent leader among the black people and is elected to Congress with his dream of becoming the first black President of the United States.
