The White Guy in the Room: A Political Memoir
February 1, 2017 –
Vail Public Library welcomes Douglas J. Patton, author of The White Guy in the Room: A Political Memoir, on Wednesday, February 1 at 5:30pm. The White Guy in the Room: A Political Memoir is the story about Patton's journey from a young naïve college student from rural Iowa, with little or no knowledge and understanding of African-American history and culture, to a key and seasoned political player in the empowerment of blacks in America. Equally important, he offers an inside glimpse of the strategic roles of whites like him in the civil rights movement.
