Black Men loving White Women in the 60s Boomer by Dewey Edward Chester

As it was with President Barack Obama, Professor Chester’s mother was a White woman, and theirs was a private affair; unavoidably individual.

But most Black men who loved White women were murdered, in the 1960’s. The novel, “Boomer: Sex, Race, and Professional Football,” tells the truth about interracial love affairs that overcame prejudice and hatred during the era.

The Reader is moved to tears at the sacrifice a Black man and his White woman make, at the sight of love triumphant.

Paula Ellis and Michael Stahr will die for love, but first they struggle through a biased Higher- Educational system, and of course against the biased Governor of Alabama, George Wallace, and his thousands of supporters.

The George Wallace philosophy embraced the idea of “Segregation in America, Forever!” The Governor was a formidable opponent.

But Paula and Michael grew in stature, strength and determination, during their interracial-courtship, and at the end, despite even death, they are united.

The premise of the story is that ‘a great love can defy even death.’ Professor Chester believes this philosophy; his novel proves the passion of his conviction.

  • Terrible to think about segregation and racism. Every testimony should help to look for a better future. Thanks Dewey

  • having grown up in a society where human rights were defined in vivid color – white – and having witnessed the racially-oriented atrocities of the 60s in this country, this is a must-read for me – as it should be for anyone interested in the least in the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth of the state of affairs of this country then – and even now – of course, one has to remember, as well, the events upon which this country was established by the “great white founding fathers” – annihilation of a complete race of native people already here for thousands of years and the capture and enslavement of another nation brought here to build the “new world” – and among the most heinous sins to be committed during these times was that of interracial relationships – well, according to the white majority – you know the ones – those that hid behind their white sheets – and then, perhaps the most dangerous of all, those who hid behind the masks of civility and domesticity – the white families who employed domestic help – in any event, i digress – but cannot leave without expressing my highest regard for this author – and others like him – who have the courage to speak up and act out and write more!

  • Wow! Jenean, you are so passionate! I still remember when a person said slavery was only part of the past… referring to a poem by you. Of course, it’s still a very important problem. In fact racism has very faces.

  • it’s difficult to not be passionate about injustices…from very early childhood i remember speaking up whenever i saw what i perceived as injustice [which was fairly frequent]… 😉

    Beth A Kelly – Dewey Chester wrote this novel on a subject most would dare to go. His novel “Boomer” was written in an era where in some states, it was against the law for a Black man and a White woman to have a romantic, intimate realtionship. To just fall in love. So many people could not except this writing. It didn`t matter how exellent of an an Author he is or how great Deweys screenwritting is, they simply looked at the topic and turned their heads. A MUST READ !!!!!!!!!

    • People must develop ethics but we are only worried of developing weapons. Authors as Dewey shows us the correct way. We agree with you Beth A Kelly. Thanks for your thoughts

  • Beth A. Kelly

    Beth A Kelly- Lets face it we live in America, the great melting pot where different cutures live as one. As the pledge of allegiance in the United Staes of America says “One Nation Under God. ” As people recite this on a daily basis , do they really believe what they are saying or are they just merely words. Author Dewey Edward Chester Novel “Boomer” embraces the very essence of what America symbolizes and stands for. This is an exellent Novel that brings America to life by the very words on the pages. A definite Novel to add to your reading list and collection!!!!!!

    Dear Jenean,
    Finally, I’ve the chance to tell you how much your comments meant to me. Your passionate response of offering the “Truth in Writing” has been a stable of mine for decades, yet no one has expressed so much passion and understanding of my subject matter, as you have. Jenean, you lit a spark to my writing I had not possessed, before. Thank you!!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
