MAGIC

“Superbly written….Looking forward to reading the entire book. Just read the first few pages. It is pure magic, Just like the photograph!” TY COPEMAN

All baby boomers remember Mr. Dixon of the TV show Room 222. And we also remember that an African-American starring–or even being–on a television show in those days was rare indeed. In this respect, Lloyd Haynes was Larry Doby to Bill Cosby’s Jackie Robinson (a baseball reference. Larry Doby was the first African American to play in the American League, and the second African American to play in the Majors, just 3 months after Robinson. Unlike Robinson, Doby went straight from the Negro Leagues to the majors. He endured the same racial indignities–but without the accompanying celebration and place in the history books.)

The story of Lloyd Haynes is an important one–well beyond his time spent on a beloved TV show. 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.

Congratulations Carolyn on the fruition of your book!

The synopsis:
Discover the elevating choices actor Lloyd Haynes, star of critically acclaimed 1970s television series Room 222 made through painful, restricting and often dangerous bigotry while influenced by the Mafia, and the KKK. His compelling journey from a “segregated mortuary” to stardom, his mind-plaguing secret, captivating moments with a king, recognition from the United States Senate, the Marines, the navy, the aeronautics industry, the film industry, and poignant stories from strangers, family, friends, and co-workers.  PHIL RICE
