My name is Herbert George Strider. I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Hill District on June 21, 1944, and raised in a strict Catholic family. I attended St. Richard’s Catholic school on the Hill and attended Central Catholic High School. After my Sophomore at Central Catholic, the family moved to Cleveland Eastside where I attended East High School and graduated on June 15, 1962, and on July 16, 1962, I joined the United States Air Force. I was a jet engine technician for 16 years and due to combat injuries retrained to Training Manager until I retired on August 1, 1982. I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Occupational Education. Since then, I have taught school, worked as a Records Manager for the Navy, and worked some in Human Resources. I am a disabled combat Vietnam vet.
I have 3 adult children, 9 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren. I love gardening and I have published 2 black History books. I am fascinated with American History and the struggles of all the people that made this country great.
The Chronicles of the African American is about American history that was not taught in schools. It is about a timeline of sorts, a calendar of events in the life of the African American outside the plantation. The laws of our land that governed the African/American and some of the results. This book is about a quest for freedom, equality, and dignity.
