The Great Divide: Race, Justice, and the Struggle for American Civil Rights by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who is African American, is out today in paperback.
And it’s an epic story of how racism and racism in America has evolved from the civil rights movement to the civil war.
But it’s also a very personal story.
It starts in 1966, when Johnson was 15 years old.
He was living in Atlanta, where he and his white family lived with his mother and a half-sister.
That was the year of the Watts Rebellion, an uprising against the racist police that had been imposed by Jim Crow laws.
The city was a hotbed for black rebellion, and Johnson had a history of being bullied.
He said his family had been racially profiled and that his mom and dad had been arrested at least twice.
Johnson said he wanted to help his mom.
But he was still a kid, and so was his family.
So, in 1967, when he was 19, he moved to Atlanta.
He’d been bullied by the cops in the past.
He knew his dad was still being harassed, but Johnson says he also didn’t want to make it any worse.
Johnson didn’t have much of a family.
He grew up poor, in an inner city neighborhood where he was constantly being followed and harassed.
His mother had been homeless and in and out of prison.
He says he had no money and couldn’t go to college.
He wanted to be a doctor.
But, when you’re young, you don’t really understand the importance of money, Johnson says.
But, he had a lot of dreams and a lot to offer.
He also had a big family.
His mom died of cancer when he wasn’t in his late teens.
He moved back in with his parents.
Johnson went to college at Atlanta State University and became an assistant professor of African American Studies there.
In 1976, he was named president of the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP.
He worked to help black people feel like they were part of society and that they weren’t just another person, he said.
That’s the reason why his book is so personal.
Johnson’s story is told through the eyes of a young black man who lived through the Civil Rights era.
But his family isn’t always the same.
He writes that his father had been in prison, while his mother had a drug problem and a history with mental illness.
Johnson says that his mother, who had been abused by her father and her brother, had gotten addicted to cocaine.
And, his father was never convicted of any crime.
But Johnson says his father’s incarceration didn’t change him.
The violence, he says, was just part of life.
He didn’t think it was bad, but he did see it as a punishment for living a life like his father did.
Johnson said he was raised by a single mom, who never had a son.
His dad would go to prison for a couple of years, then get out, Johnson said.
He would get kicked out and have to start over again.
Johnson says he wanted a career as a lawyer, but his dad wouldn’t let him.
Johnson went back to school, but then the NAACP called.
Johnson told his dad he had to speak out against the racism of the time.
He told his father, who was still angry, Johnson wrote.
He had to fight the whole time to make the fight go on.
Johnson ended up becoming a lawyer in Atlanta and then went on to study at the University of Georgia Law School.
He went to work for the civil liberties and minority rights division of the Justice Department.
In 1986, he joined the department as a special assistant to the assistant secretary for civil rights.
He eventually went on the staff at the Department of Justice.
Johnson was there for the Reagan administration, where it was still reeling from the impact of the Rodney King riots.
Johnson worked to bring the civil suits against the Ku Klux Klan and the South Carolina police for the death of Rodney King.
And he saw how the civil disobedience tactics that were used against King could be used to fight back against racism and segregation.
He saw how racial justice could be brought to the fore of the civil justice movements.
He was also there for President George H.W. Bush, who used the civil lawsuit against the South Panthers to create the Southern Strategy to counter the Black Power Movement.
He is credited with starting the Black Panthers, which was the name for a group of people who believed that whites were racist, that blacks were a threat to white supremacy.
Johnson worked with then-Attorney General Janet Reno to bring an end to the practice of racial profiling.
He helped prosecute two white police officers in the killing of Freddie Gray, an 18-year-old black man in Baltimore.
He fought for a federal ban on partial-birth abortion, which had been legal in the U.S. for decades.
And in 2007, he
