Read Ernest Crim's dynamic account on how one pivotal encounter caused him in that very moment to reflect on his path; and how the sacrifice of all those who came before him brought him to a moment that challenged him and catapulted him...as a Black man, and as a upholder of the legacy.
BLACK HISTORY SAVED MY LIFE
Black History Saved My Life: How My Viral Hate Crime Led to an Awakening is the compelling autobiography of Ernest Crim III, an educator, consultant and speaker, who recorded and was the target, along with his wife, of one of the most widely publicized hate crimes in the Trump-era. More than 25 million people saw the vile attack as it circulated social media in the summer of 2016. Many were compelled with the restraint the recorder, Ernest Crim III, showed while enduring a barrage of N-words, which were followed by spit. However, very few know the story of a man whose constant battles with racism as a child and adult, in the 90s and 2000s leading up to this moment, equipped him with the resolve to respond appropriately and pursue the case diligently. We all encounter trials and tribulations in life that are preparing us for our larger purpose. Black History Saved Ernest’s Life. What’s going to save yours?
