REVIEW: Dr. Wayne Perryman’s book, WHEN OUR HOMES HAD PORCHES, is must reading. Those of us who remember the years before the government onslaught on families will warmly welcome this book not only to enjoy but also to pass on to their children. We need to remember and understand that there was another, better time in the not too distant past. Fortunately, the book describes a period in history, when black businesses were thriving in the black community and when the black millionaires were business men and business women instead of athletes and entertainers.

 

Wayne Perryman wrote this book with his two sons. When they were young, they asked him about their history, and he had them start researching the black community in the recent past. What they found is that it was intact community with very little divorce, hardly any gangs, very few serious crimes, prayer in schools, and a strong connection to the local church. Neighbors where neighborly, and ministers were the heroes.

 

In the 1960s, a spate of government programs known as the Great Society destroyed the African American community. No fault divorce, welfare dependency, projects, and one problem after another.

 

This book does not look at the well-known negatives, but all the positives of a time when people had faith, family and fun. Of course, there were egregious problems, but they were not nearly as egregious as what families are facing today.

 

WHEN OUR HOMES HAD PORCHES is well worth reading.
