I Was Born in A Shack by Alligator Creek...
My story is an account of growing up on tenant farms in Southwest Georgia—the son of hardscrabble, sharecropper
parents that had only five years of formal education between them. Paid In Full is the story of the life journey
of a child that came of age on a Georgia tenant farm in the 1950s. It is also a story that follows the journey from sharecropping
to university classrooms and to the upper ranks of the pharmaceutical industry's boardrooms prior to returning to Georgia
Southern University, Statesboro, GA, to establish a college of public health. While there are some works that detail
the plight of poor black sharecroppers in the South, this might be one of only a very few that examines the role of poor white
tenant farmers during that era. My book is a story of adversity, determination, achievement, philanthropy, loss, and love—a
triumph of human will over circumstance.
