Dr. Frank L. Douglas, to Join in This Year’s Book Excellence Awards

Author and Doctor Douglas shows in his book how a life weaved with countless hardships can always be overcome when one decides to give oneself a fighting chance in this harsh world.


Defining Moments of a Free Man from a Black Stream,” authored by Dr. Frank Douglas, is on the list to compete in one of the most awaited annual book awards, Book Excellence Awards 2020. Recommended for its undeniable top-notch content, the author’s work has a good chance in being one of the finalists in the said competition.
The humble Dr. Douglas’ memoir of self-determination displays the struggle of a man and how he rose beyond the overwhelming hate fueled by ignorance. At the age of twenty years old, young Douglas fell victim to faith-shattering racism and identity-stripping cultural prejudice. Through un-waning resilience, profound reflections, and hard work, he decided to seize the moment and define his future to his own accord – unyielding to what the hateful world had to say.
Although welcomed by poverty when he was born and faced with countless discrimination and other hardships, he later became engaged in pharmaceutical research and has participated in drug development for diabetes, seizures, and cancer – A once wounded life now driven with the passion to heal. Brutally honest and imperative, “Defining Moments of a Free Man from a Black Stream” encourages readers to be unaffected by narrow minds and dares them to tread the path less traveled.
Be filled with a kind and encouraging wisdom and unchain yourself from the age-old culture of hate, racism and discrimination, with the guidance of Dr. Frank L. Douglas’ hope-rebuilding book, “Defining Moments of a Free Man from a Black Stream.” The book is available for purchase on Amazon books.
