August 28, 1963 was a significant day for Lloyd Haynes; the love for Martin Luther King Jr. was palpable. It was one thing to hear him speak, but to be in his presence, you felt the genuine love he had for humanity and it was an inspiring, life-changing event.

Petri Hawkins Byrd is affectionately known as “Byrd” the bailiff, and yes he’s a real bailiff on the Emmy award-winning court drama, “Judge Judy”.
Review from: PHIL RICE, Journeyman writer and editor at Canopic Publishing The story of Lloyd Haynes is an important one–well beyond his time spent on a beloved TV show- Room 222. His life was rich, full, and extremely difficult on many levels. And it’s a story of the changing–and unchanging–culture of America in the 1960s-1980s. The author, Carolyn Haynes, was the late actor’s wife. She is able to bring an inside perspective to the story, but this is more than a memoir. It’s a carefully researched biography too. Mr. Haynes deserves nothing less.
It’s a biography, autobiographical, but above all it’s a love story. Carolyn Haynes shares not just the story of her late husband, but the life she shared with him as well. Her memories are so fresh and entertaining. I can remember watching Mr. Haynes on television. This book reveals what an interesting and persistent individual he was. Impossible to read without feeling like I personally knew him. A positive story, at a much needed time in our history.
