This is a story about a man who came from humble beginnings and ended up at the crest of power in Washington and Moscow. The story takes us into the depths of a racially segregated South to the desperate streets of New York City where criminals and crime fighters fought for control and to an America reeling from the assassination of its political leaders. It is the story of the growth of America. It is the story of a man who kept scaling seemingly insurmountable walls as he fought for justice. This is the story of Charles LeRoy Gittens.
