Rolling Thunder:

 Stomping Out Indifference

book image.jpg

William B. Newell rose from obscurity as a 21-year-old uneducated Mohawk/Penobscot Indian to be a well-respected Sociology/Anthropology professor; lifting up his people all the while with his compelling voice and persuasive manner. He spoke to hundreds of organizations in his lifetime on the contributions of the American Indian to civilization, questioning just how much the Indian influenced Europeans, as much as how the reverse was considered to be true. His inspirational journey shows how he became successful in a White Man's world. He hoped to quash the apathy that existed, and any negative beliefs held about their intellectual capacity. This is history about a fairly contemporary American Indian(born 1892-1981) and would be a good resource for college students or anyone interested in this subject.
