Overview

This is the action-filled biography of Marvin E. Gilmore, Jr., an African-American musician-turned-businessman, the grandson of slaves, who rose from poverty to achieve the American dream. He's a decorated U.S. war hero who earned France's Legion of Honor and he has waged a life-long battle against racism and for jobs-creation. This book describes battles with armed segregationists, and making music with Hollywood stars. Gilmore has also played a key role in helping Boston outgrow its racial divisions.
