  • We look forward to accepting the manuscript from Robert “Bob” Harris who has been writing about his experience as a world-class sprinter at Florida A&M University during the 1960s. Sharing one of the spots on the record-breaking relay team was dormitory roommate and legendary speed bullet, Bob Hayes, then known as the “World’s Fastest Man.” At the time that records were being shattered on the track, Mr. Harris and his teammates were coping with the effects of tumultuous social change in America. A champion sprinter and Vietnam veteran, who later ascended to the highest levels on Capitol Hill and the US Postal Service, he provides insights into a unique period in track and field history. Anticipated publication date is spring 2015.
