About the Author

Grady B. Parks Jr. was born at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Ga., on July 28, 1940. Growing up under segregation and its enforced limitations was very puzzling. It was very difficult to understand what a person’s color had to do with human dignity, work opportunities and social justice. After graduating from Booker T. Washington High School in 1959, it became increasingly clear that he had to make a life-changing decision — go to college or join the military to get his service obligation out of the way in order to take advantage of future opportunities within our black or white communities. His initial military career was a great awakening because it forced him to take charge of himself. His 30 years in the United States Air Force exposed him to many multicultural experiences while attaining the highest enlisted rank of chief master sergeant.
