Edward R. Leon Hamner Sr.’s New Book ‘From Here to There’ is a Deeply Insightful Memoir About a Black Citizen Living in America

Fulton Books author Edward R. Leon Hamner Sr., a real estate appraiser, has completed his most recent book “From Here to There”: a contemplative account depicting the history of Black people residing in Alabama during the Jim Crow era. This is a detailed exposition of the author’s life, dated from his childhood down to his late teens, in hopes to educate everyone about the Black people’s hardships and discriminations in Southern America during that unfortunate era.
Edward writes, “This book is about my journey in life growing up through the years. This is a true story of how it was living in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama, during the Jim Crow era, and military life, also my life as a citizen after the Jim Crow era in the United States. This book shows the statutes that a Black citizen had to live by in America. The story that I am telling is not just about me. This is how Black people live in the USA. When you read this story, you can also see the progress that has been made in this country between White and Black relationships. I have come this far without hate but seeking equal rights. When you see Black people protesting, it is not because we hate but to be able to reach the American Dream. This is what this book is all about.”
Published by Fulton Books, Edward R. Leon Hamner Sr.’s book is a sympathetic read that explores the history of the Black people to provide better understanding on why they continue to fight for their human rights.
