The Only One in the Room
is a serious treatment on the subject of race in America, exploring why the problems persist, and what Christ-followers must do to help our nation heal.
Throughout his life, especially while working as a high-profile professional in the Midwest, author Milton Thompson was often the only African American in his circles. A minister and educator, he uses the backdrop of his personal journey to skillfully and knowledgeably assess where we’ve been as a nation, and where we are now. The Only One in the Room
crosses several literary genres, and offers readers ~
- The moving story of a remarkable African American family
- Provocative social and political commentary
- An intimate look at an enduring love story
- Biblical hope and inspiration
Thompson says he’s become more reflective about race as he’s gotten older. He possesses a seasoned, gracious, and godly perspective, which is just what we need right now.
