DR. DOUGLAS RAY-BREAUX  is traveling from Houston, TX, to share his new book,  “The Color of Freedom After the Turbulent ’60s”, which fosters a healthy and positive image of the black cultural heritage from a culture evolutionary perspective. This approach empowers the readers by describing the psycho-social behavior and growth of Blacks in overcoming the disparities; in family/cultural values, economic, education, and health care. The public is invited.
