“I am so happy to be a member of the Outskirts Press family of authors. From start to finish the staff walked me through the process with the end result being the book which I had always imagined. The staff perhaps made it a little better than even I envisioned. It has been a wonderful experience and I look forward to working with Outskirts Press on my next book project.”
Rick Whitlow was born and raised in Michigan City, Indiana. A star athlete who attended Illinois State University on a basketball scholarship. His background in media and public relations catapulted him into the arena of politics where he gracefully navigated the sometimes hostile racial, social, and economic landscape.
Although it has a sports backdrop, this book goes far beyond athletic accomplishments and achievements. Rick takes an up close and personal look at the broadcast journalism industry, politics, personal relationships, cancer diagnosis, and, last but certainly not least, race in America and how it affects those areas and others. Throughout the book you will probably recognize many people places and situations. Perhaps learn something about someone you thought you knew.
