About this title
I was raised in the white suburbs of St. Louis County. I didn't know what it was like to be black in a white society. Then I moved into an integrated mostly poor neighborhood in St. Louis' inner city. I began meeting all the 10-12 year old boys in the neighborhood on Saturdays. We went to the Zoo, a park in the country, and on two overnight camping trips. The boys were all black. I had to learn about them, and they had to learn about me, and we both moved to the middle in the more than three years that we met at the side door of the local Episcopal Church every Saturday. My new neighbors included Black Panthers, Warlords and Black Egyptians. I was a lawyer, and they had needs, and I became a friend and confidant and an interface with the white world I left behind. This is the story of those days.About the Author:
William C. Honey practices poverty law in Pinellas County, Florida. He has practiced law in six states and taught at numerous universities, including the University of Arkansas Law School and Sidney Sussex College of Cambridge University, Great Britain. He retired as Associate Professor Emeritus from Auburn University in Alabama, where he lived for many years even though he never thought he would visit Alabama except in a Freedom Bus, but he found many kindred souls there and founded a city magazine that won awards from different civic organizations. In his career in St. Louis he developed a 1,200 acre airport/industrial park that is the third largest in Missouri, but did not make a dime. Then he formed a company and bought 400 housing units in the inner city and began rehabilitation, but again he went broke, moved to Puerto Rico for several years and taught English and sailed a boat. He has married several times and has five children and six grandchildren and is proud of all of them.
