BOOKS by Dr. Dorothy R. Swygert



In “Healing the Nation”, Dr. Dorothy R. Swygert shares her model for restoring America to a moral state. Her three-fold presentation [Connection, Disconnection and Reconnection] recalls the early history of African Americans and sheds light on the origin of the nation. Swygert examines how the moral supports of society have crumbled since the 1960s, and looks forward at the likely results of this decline if the nation fails to turn around. Dr. Swygert invites each one of us to join in the work of strengthening our nation by nurturing our children and rebuilding the institutions that once guided our lives—home, church, school and community. She says, “We can and must unite to steer our ship through troubled waters, and we can come of age through our most precious resource—our posterity. Included are current prison statistics and other vital resources to show the need to restore hope in neighborhoods across the nation. Hardback, 247 pp., ISBN: 978-0-9648737-2-8. $24.95.
