This book documents the historical practices of discrimination exercised against blacks and other minorities by the municipal government of The City of Tallahassee, Florida. Some City staff ignored the blatant and flagrant practices of denying minority employees the opportunities for raises, bonuses, and promotions, often withholding job vacancy lists while channeling minority applicants into applying for low paying jobs.

These discriminatory practices began long before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and in April 1975, a group of civil rights activists came together to file a lawsuit against the City Commission and city managers, past and present, in the United States District Court of Northern District of Florida to document and stop these practices. The suit alleged that The City of Tallahassee engaged in the practice of hiring administrators who would unethically do almost anything to carry out the racist and bigoted practices of the City administrators. Often when blacks were hired, they were not provided adequate staffing or equipment necessary to accomplish teir job duties in a professional manner.

Brown documents how during his years of employment, wrongdoers intentionally brought many storms into his life, but Brown states that his faith brought him through and allowed him to witness the consequences of their wickedness when some were arrested and convicted.

Brown testifies to the truth of scriptures he lives by that helped him overcome these trials: “So that we may boldly say, the Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do to me” and “For therefore we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God Who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe.”
