About the author Kevin A Harrison was born on April 4 in Houston Texas to two young black professionals in 1956. His parents served as a foreshadowing of the American family's future where both parents held professional careers. In the 1950's and 1960's the "accepted American way was for the Father to work and the Mother was usually the homemaker who remained at home and raised the kid.His mother taught college at Texas Southern University and his father was the first black foremen for Halliburton’s subsidiary Brown and Root where he oversaw the electrical infrastructure for the Houston Astro-dome and Astro-world amusement park. Kevin was raised “color blind” and did not understand the level of hatred that racism delivered daily due to the color of one's skin,until his first week in New York after his family relocated to Long Island in 1966. After beginning his education in the segregated south and relocating to the integrated schools in the north, Kevin continued to view all people as people and saw no colors. His view of the world of innocence would be altered during his first encounter with right out racism perpetuated against him at the age of ten in Roosevelt New York! In middle school there were race riots in northern schools and across the country as the fight for rights reached its apex! After attending Syracuse University where too many people "assumed" that he was there because of "affirmative action" Kevin moved south again where he excelled in business and occasionally wrote poetry to tell his story of failures and successes in a unique and powerful way. Early in 2000 he saw three of his poems published and would soon see his first book Called “See through me” published to share his adventures in life with the world in poetry and pictures as a very powerful autobiography and is like no other story ever told! Kevin initiates what no one else will discuss and that is the further degradation between whites and blacks in this country and demonstrates exactly what it feels like to constantly be seen as a color first! Just once Kevin says, "I'd love to walk down the street or go to a store without being seen as a color first."
