“The Sprits of Goldsboro and the Ghosts of Sanford is a simplified informative manual concerning the Seminole County Citizens of Florida. This Book has been compiled for the purpose of reminding all persons that regardless of the present conditions at this time frame in life in America there were citizens that stood adverse conditions to make some of today’s comforts possible. Also it is my opinion that in these host of upcoming years Americans will focus their attention on the basic political ideologies which have enabled us to endure so many tumultuous political and social episodes during the past two centuries. Seminole County Florida should be reminded that although black people did not write the constitution of the United States, their lawyers have contributed mightily to making it work. The persons contributing histories of this chosen chapter are blessed to be among those to witness the social changes in our neighborhood. It is important to remind the county and the nation that what we Blacks are commemorating is not simply the fallen heroes, but the triumph of our spirit and contribution to the ideals of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all America.
There will be a day that we will not have in America, “Black Awareness” week, Black Neighborhoods, China town, Swedish Neighborhood, German American Neighborhoods Black Ghetto, White town, Indian territory, across the tracks, Puerto Rican town. Vietnamese refugees. All people will be Americans helping one another to survive. I am praying that it doesn’t take a nuclear war to make us stoop to help our neighbor….
