Chuck Miller "After playing on the trumpet the school's fight song, Our Boys Gonna Shine Tonight by ear, they put me in the high school band. It all happened so fast, I was only in the sixth grade." Of all the musicians/teachers to be associated with the instruction of youth in the Omaha community, Chuck Miller was the most influential and the most controversial. Despite his seeming less impossible task of developing the raw unused musical talents of at-risk children and developing them into singers and performers in popular bands, many of the youth taught by him have grown up into productive professional musicians. As a result of his teaching, they have performed all over the world. Few musicians in the Omaha community would seem to have been more deserving of a job well done than Chuck Miller.

The irony of this book is to show that fifty years after the 1963 civil rights movement, blacks are still experiencing the same types of problems they experienced in 1963. She talks about how as a college administrator she experienced some of the same types of situations she experienced thirty years earlier when she worked in the motion picture industry at Warner Brothers Studios. In her book, she talks about the Jim Crow laws and the Stand Your Ground laws. She also talks about President Obama’s challenges in becoming the first black president of the United States and his reelection. Her primary point is that there has not been enough change in the area of racial equality in the last fifty years.
