Author Biography

Dr. Richard C. Harris ran the largest underground terrorist organization in the Midwestern U.S. in the mid- to late-1970s. After a dramatic transformational experience, he denounced his former beliefs and associations and is now a popular speaker, award-winning author, university professor, pastor, and civil rights/justice activist.

Holding two degrees in Christian Ministry from Indiana Wesleyan University and Bethel College, a doctorate in Adult Higher Education from Nova Southeastern University, and a masters degree in Communication from Spring Arbor University, "Doc" Harris has taught at Purdue University North Central Campus, Spring Arbor University, and, presently, Southeastern University in Lakeland, FL.

A popular speaker on college campuses and at church and corporate settings, Doc Harris captivates his audiences with stories they'll never hear anywhere else and challenges them with lessons he's learned on his journey from racism, bigotry, prejudice and hate to acceptance, love, and tolerance. He is an accomplished speaker in the areas of leadership, education, diversity, race relations, communication, and persuasion.

    Book Review

Reviewed by Jean Brickell for Readers' Favorite

This book is about the infamous KKK, or Ku Klux Klan and it is very informative. I learned more about the organization than I ever knew. The "Curse" which the title of the book refers to is the curse of racism that is handed down through generations and he explains how people who think they are free from racism are still under the influence of our past generations. This man was a member of the Ku Klux Klan and even held the highest office in the state of Indiana while under the age of twenty one. The Klan even had ties to some Christian churches and used Bible "quotes" to their advantage. Mostly the quotes stopped short of the true biblical interpretation. Some were just out of context or actually incorrect. The clan even had chaplains that served the Klans. How this man had his life turned around and worked through his own racism is a very interesting story and is an inspiration to others.

This is a first-hand documentary of the Ku Klux Klan written by a man who not only was a member but was the leader of the Klan in the state of Indiana and this was before he was before twenty one. The amazing turn around of this man's life and his decision to leave the clan and devote his life to Christ was really due to reading the Bible and acknowledging that the Bible was really anti-racist and not what the racist doctrine he had been exposed to tried to teach him.
