In his book “Black Dad—White Dad: The James Womack Story” (published by AuthorHouse), James Womack shares how he overcame a series of challenges to become a college-educated Vietnam veteran and raise a healthy family.
“My book is about triumphing over racism and hatred with unconditional love and being victorious with the grace of God in overcoming circumstances that would cause a weaker man to succumb,” Womack says.
Womack came of age as a black man in the “separate but equal” Jim Crow South. Living in poverty, he did not learn to read until later in life. He also shares historical events surrounding Jim Crow laws and the murder of Emmitt Till from his unique, personal perspective.
“Do not allow the circumstances of your birth to determine your life,” Womack says. “If you have a dream and are willing to spend the energy to make it happen, the sky is the limit.”
