This sign was hanging on the main street intersection of downtown, from the 1920s to the late 1960s, two blocks from where I lived. My hometown is Greenville, Texas. Greenville is known throughout the nation for two things: its unique slogan, "The Blackest Land - The Whitest People" and its famous 1908 lynching. The famous sign hung on the main street between our train station and our bus station. As soldiers and civilian passengers passed through our town, it provided a very conspicuous view. This book is about what it was like being black and growing up in Greenville, Texas. It is also in remembrance of all those before us who went through struggles to help people free themselves from undesirables which had previously enslaved us. Although we obtained certain rights, I give you a background and the history of why things were the way they were. Even a more valuable history is of why things are still the way they are, especially between blacks. Is it because of a single, powerful, twisted-minded genius 292 years ago, whose theory is still a powerful affront in the black race today? My hope is to help break this chain of enslavement of blacks against blacks in my hometown. History was not always pretty; but to say, "Forget the past," is saying Black History doesn't matter. Black history is American history, and it has been missing from the history books for a long time. My goal is not to keep bringing up the past. My goal is to include some of those that were there, and helped, endeared, molded, designed and build Greenville so that it is what it is today..... Therefore, I have integrated Greenville's Historical Timeline to include some of the African Americans who were there, but not included.

About the Author:

Brenda Huey RN, JD Brenda is best known for her medical and legal skills. She graduated from Central Texas College nursing program, as a registered nurse. She worked as a critical care nurse and is a pioneer in open-heart surgery. She attended Baylor University, East Texas State University, University of Texas, Austin and University of Phoenix. She was the first black RN in many hospitals, as well as the first black nurse in administration in a Kaiser Facility, in Anaheim, California. She helped set up the first nursing program at Charles Drew Medical School. She worked as a public health nurse, for the Los Angeles County Health Department and served South Central, Watts, and all of the LA Communities before and during the Riots related to the Rodney King incident. She served on numerous boards of directors and committees, and is an advocate for children and the elderly in the underprivileged communities. Brenda is a graduate of Pacific West College of Law, where she obtained her Law Degree. She specialized in Medicare denials and claims. She worked with top Attorney's in California sharing her medical expertise. The highlight of her career was the first time she met Johnnie Cochran, his words of encouragement, then later, honoring him at his Tribute of Excellence Award Dinner. Brenda broke many barriers and did her share of trailblazing. She now steps into the role of a Genealogist and an Author. Through all of her journeys, she contends, Greenville, Texas has always remained home.
