2014 Leelanau Summinars
Meet Walter Williams: a documentary discussion of Suffer No Fools
July 23, 2014
About this Summinar
Walter Williams is one of the most remarkable Black Americans you will ever meet. Despite his color and life experience, Dr. Williams is opposed to the Civil Rights Act of 1964; he is opposed to affirmative action; to welfare; to the minimum wage and to all the other government ideas invented to "help" black people in America.
In preparation for this summinar you might look through two books on which the documentary is based. Both by Walter Edward Williams.
You will also find interesting background information by googling "Walter Williams."
