About the Author:

The author was born in a shotgun house on the George Dixon plantation in Senatobia, Mississippi. He is the third of eight children born to sharecroppers with limited education and great wisdom. He was trained to perform farm work at the age of five. The activities included: plowing the farmland; chopping cotton; picking cotton; picking and shelling peas; grazing the mules; gathering the cows; milking the cows; feeding the hogs; and maintaining the gardens. The author's first year of schooling was in an old one-room building with one teacher. The one teacher taught eight different grades in the same day at Saint Mary's School in Nesbitt, Mississippi. The author received his elementary and high school education in the segregated public school system of DeSoto County, Mississippi. He graduated as valedictorian of his senior class. He led two major civil rights demonstrations against the school system during his tenure as a student. The author holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry; a Master of Science degree in Organic Chemistry; and a Ph.D degree in Organic Chemistry. He served as a college professor, division chair, dean, provost, executive vice president and interim president of higher educational institutions for more than 30 years. He is President of Divine Fulfillment Institute. He is an ordained minister. He filed and won a major federal lawsuit against the State of Mississippi in 1975. The lawsuit was titled, Frazier v. the State of Mississippi. The lawsuit addressed voter registration discrimination practices against Black College students who desired to register and vote in the city that they resided while attending college. The author's family has been traced back to the Mbundu ethnic tribe in Angola, The Akan ethnic umbrella of tribes in Ghana, and the Yoruba and Fulani ethnic tribes in Nigeria. His 256 great <6x>grandparents are believed to have been born and died in West Africa. He has reclassified himself as a Multi-Nationalist. He is on a mission to reconnect his family members across the world. He is the father of five adult children. He is the grandfather of nine grandchildren. He is the author of four books: “Journey into My Soul”, “Converting Thoughts and Words into Things and Advancements”, “Mississippi: Beneath the Surface!”, and “Branded with African Blood.”
