A Journey into Civil Rights and Politics
- By the White Guy from the Suburbs that Helped Elect the First Black Big-City Mayor

A MEMOIR by B. Kenneth McGee
A lifetime spent addicted to booze, fast horses and long-shot politicians.

Eyes Shut Tight...

As a reporter in Cleveland in the 1960s, I knew a lot about what was going on behind the scenes in politics. But Ken McGee's revelations blew me away. His journey through dark corridors of politics, gambling and alcoholism is bluntly honest.

James M. Naughton

James Naughton is a former White House and national politics correspondent for The New York Times.

B. Kenneth McGee...

The white guy from the suburbs that helped elect the first black big-city mayor.

Ken McGee lives in the woods of North Carolina with his wife Lee and various "walk on" and rescued canines. From the sixties through the eighties he was a political campaign manager, consultant, and speech writer starting with the history making candidacy of Carl Stokes in Cleveland, Ohio, the first Black Mayor of a major American city. This is his first book and at age seventy-six he thinks life is just starting.
