Collen Plummer shares his story of faith, resilience, and perseverance in his autobiography “No, My Brother, I am My Brother”
Stories of faith and fortitude amidst adversity will always amaze and transform readers. One such story belongs to Collen Plummer, author of No, My Brother, I am My Brother (Fulton Books; 2021).
The autobiography No, My Brother, I am My Brother narrates the author's struggles with racial discrimination and injustice every day of his life. He speaks at length about the scholarships that he lost for reasons he still doesn't know after breaking national records for track and field at high school. Indeed, his story reflects the injustices black Americans continue to deal with daily no matter their accomplishments.
As readers go through Plummer's story, they cannot help but reflect on “Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler, who was falsely detained by police in Atlanta early this year after he was mistaken for a bank robber at a bank. In fact, an earlier case of racial injustice – the murder of George Floyd – inspired the author to write No, My Brother, I am My Brother.
“Witnessing a black man having the life choked out of him for ten minutes by a white policeman is one of the main reasons why I wrote this book,” wrote Plummer on the back cover of his book, “because I develop products that save lives and here goes the white man choking the life out of another black man for no reason.”
No, My Brother, I am My Brother does more than just tell the suffering faced by an accomplished black American. The autobiography also highlights the author's strong faith in Jesus Christ and God, who carried him through hard times – and helped open (more) doors for him in life.
“One of the main things I can ever tell a child or parent is that remembering the Lord's name, even before you remember your name, will go a long way in life. That means putting God in your life as soon as possible, and I do believe somebody had to die for our sins, who is Jesus Christ.
“You better have the Lord in your life because the decisions and choices you make in life, you are going to need God. I knew that Fortune 500 companies had tuition reimbursement, so when one door closes in life, another door opens in life, just as long as you have the Lord with you. That's the only way I can make it. Thank you, Jesus!”
