If David Beckwith’s biography had to be reduced to one word, the word would be “persistence.”David persisted to become the first member of his family to earn a bachelor’s degree and then persisted once again to be the first to receive a master’s degree as well.

In his early twenties, David became the first white teacher to cross the color barrier and agree to teach for an all-black Mississippi school district which had been formally classified by the 5th United States Circuit Court as “in defiance” and then persisted in helping guide it through a federally mandated, court supervised, total immediate desegregation. This experience resulted in David’s first foray as a published author, the critically acclaimed but somewhat controversial narrative, nonfiction book, A New Day In The Delta. – Join Dr Mike tonight at 6p EST for this exciting interview!
