    Book details


After author Sherman Turner suffered a debilitating and paralyzing stroke, he was advised by his doctors during his recovery to try learning a foreign language to help him regain some of his lost memory and verbal abilities. He chose to visit Kenya in 2004 to learn the Kiswahili language, spoken in eastern Africa. While in Kenya, Turner witnessed Kenyan people experiencing discrimination and came to the conclusion that discrimination occurred everywhere and was not unique to the American experience. This realization triggered in him flashbacks and returns of memories of what he endured while working on the jobs for various government agencies. The pressures from these experiences had contributed to his stroke in the first place, but more important to him were the memories that might return to him through rehabilitation possibly including memories relating to a discrimination case involving a high-powered contractor. Kenya Rehabilitation: The Sherman Turner Story, Part II, is the sequel to Minorities Deceived, and tells the story of Turner's recovery, his efforts at recovery prior to his trip, the events of his trip, and the memories that began to return as a result of his rehabilitation efforts.

    The Sherman Turner story led me to question my own resilience. I wondered how I would fare if I had to face all the hardships he endured. This story truly touched me. Turner's life shows the strength of the human spirit. Anyone who reads this heartwarming memoir will be strengthened and encouraged.
