Product Description

A cross is burned in the yard of two black Lakeside Univ students. When campus officials call the incident a harmless prank, both black and white student organizations, launch a series of protests to force the administration into conducting a full investigation. Instead, the administration devises a divide and conquer scheme to create a rift between black and white students. As black students turn up the pressure, the campus stands on the verge of a racial explosion. Campus leaders must find a way out of the crisis so they seek the help of Dr. Wendell Oliver, the country’s leading expert in diffusing racial tension.

Dr. Oliver takes the feuding students on a weekend retreat filled with action, danger, sexual attraction and racial conflict. He helps students look beyond themselves and discover the secret behind the cross burning. They learn that the cross burning is more than just about racism. Its wicked flames shed light on corrupt cops, complicit college administrators and misguided attitudes that point to a major cover up. When students piece the puzzle together justice is finally served but it comes with a steep price. Lakeside University will never be the same again.

What Our Readers Say

“This book is a much-needed fictional contribution to the literature about truth, justice and communication with racism in higher education. It is engaging, insightful and masterfully crafted. The growth of Dr. Taylor’s characters parallels what we hope for all of our students to achieve as they discover who they are as well as who others are and how those relationships add value to each other.”-Dr. L. LaVoy, Adjunct Professor

“I found the novel very enjoyable and insightful. Two major things that stuck out in my mind were that the novel aligned with my experiences growing up as a white male in a multicultural community in a housing project in the Pittsburgh area. The second thing was that because of my background as an academic leader I found the conversation and the examples between the characters very real.”- D. Jensen, Dean

“Extremely engaging and thought provoking…so much so, that I had a hard time putting it down to do other things”-R. Scott, retired Minority Student Services Coordinator.

“Heart-wrenching, thrilling, engaging, this book can serve as an excellent common read to stimulate discussions on how to create a campus climate of inclusion for all students. I became emotionally tied to the story, the characters, their experiences and the fight for justice, action, and education. This book is another reminder of how open and honest dialogue can build trust and facilitate healing.”-B. John, Assistant Dean of Students

“I loved your book and although it’s fiction I plan on using some of the group exercises you included during the retreat. I think this novel could also be used as a way to facilitate a group through racial conflict.”-J. Schroeder, former School Teacher.

“A fascinating journey that propels us deep into inter-cultural terrain, opens us to our own hidden assumptions about race, and ultimately lands us back in the realm of our shared humanity, but with new eyes. Dr. Taylor has woven a tale that sheds new light on the kind of leadership needed in our schools, colleges and communities. Brilliant!”-R. Zambrano, Dir. of Faculty Dev.
