THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR

by | Read by Samuel DeWitt Proctor

Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1996

The grandson of slaves and father of four college-educated sons, Samuel DeWitt Proctor, theologian, educator, university president and associate director of the Peace Corps, recounts his personal and public journeys. Proctor is a master at recreating vivid portraits of the people and events of his life story. With eloquence and "Baptist pulpit rhythm" he outlines his plan for a new paradigm for the human family and "genuine community." This is not only the autobiography of an accomplished African-American and his lifelong fight against racism, but a thought-provoking prescription for a vision of an America in which "soul has no color." Inspirational music signals the end of each side of each tape and is especially moving at the conclusion. A.A.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 96]
