Roxbury Redemption by Dr. Earle Williams

Roxbury Redemption

Description : This is the story of a life well lived but with difficulties along the way. Dr. Williams tells how he overcame challenges and found a meaningful and fulfilling life with perseverance and the grace of God. With the aid of three great religions, Catholic, Baptist and the Nation of Islam he was placed on a trajectory of success. As a child his mother was told he was mentally retarded. After starting high school at the age of 12, and the only Black in all of his classes for four years, he was told “any college that accepts you is hard up”. His father told him he was too stupid to finish high school and that he should quit and get a job. Then as a 21-year-old recently discharged Air Force veteran he discovered his mother had been killed by a hit-and-run white male driver. Enraged, he embarked on a life of crime for two years until arrested and sentenced to Walpole Maximum Security Penitentiary in Massachusetts. When released, he enrolled in college and 15 years later received his doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology. In the tradition of “when you get to where you’re going don’t forget where you’ve been” he tells the story how he and perhaps others released from prison can turn their lives around. Now as a Forensic Clinical Psychologist in private practice and assistant professor at Hampton University he tells you “there’s plenty of room at the top, it’s just those darn bottoms that are so crowded”.
