At ten years of age, Gregory H. Williams began to learn just how different that life would be. Born in Virginia to a light-skinned black father and a white mother, Williams grew up thinking he was white. In 1954, he and his younger brother were forced to move to Muncie, Indiana to live with his father’s family. Issues of race and identity became a harsh reality. From that reality, a compelling and inspiring story evolved. Join Dr. Gregory H.
