In his book, Richardson
This book traces the life of the author who was born in a rural obscured Alabama village call Nymph, where abject poverty was met head on with unrelenting love. One of 12 children, this author waded through systemic racism and seemingly insurmountable odds to become the third highest ranking official in the regional city of Mobile,
In his book, Richardson set out to prove once and for all that there is but one race of people on the face of the earth, the human race; and that skin or any other color has absolutely no value in itself. He more than proved that point.
As an elected official, Richardson offered valuable advice to those seeking to be elected as well as for those already holding office.
As world traveler, Richardson shares that experience with his readers as well as the art of negotiating and trading in a global marketplace.
Readers can relive life in a rural community and gain experience from a village that survived slavery and it's aftermath and produced citizens that excelled to worldwide pro potion.
The author credits his family for providing the inspiration he needed to turn every obstacle, rock or boulder into stepping stones toward a brighter future, for himself and all others. He also credits many others who's ethnicity was different from his, with aiding he and his family in their struggle to survive the pains of poverty.
Through it all, Richardson makes it clear that he holds absolutely no animosity toward anyone, past or present; that life, with all of it's twists and turns, left him with no permanent scars, only love for every living human being.
His title was intended to show how, with the help of God, his family and many others, he was able to leave Nymph, settle in Mobile, AL, and represent that city around the world. He makes the point that God has placed in each of us the ability to rise above any present or future circumstance.
