“This fascinating publication is a witty and informative narrative of the history of Willingboro, New Jersey, (also known as Levittown), a township with a well-orchestrated, documented, and emotionally mixed heritage and a troubled, problematic, and uncertain future.  Within the narrow boundaries of this residential community, there is a story so unique and rife with hidden truths, it is well worth reading.”

About the author (2004)

The life of Dr. Joseph O. Bass has been marked by great adversity, as well as extraordinary achievement. The unexplained death of his father, the subsequent loss of the family farm in Mississippi, the unwavering faith of his mother who worked tirelessly to raise her eight children, and his deportment from Mississippi, all acquainted the author with the best and worst of the human spirit at an early age. Dr. Bass overcame ethnic and social barriers to become a successful pastor, industrial missionary and noted scholar of religion, ethics, history and sociology. This remarkable spiritual leader is the founder of the Alpha Baptist Church of Christ, the Alpha Complex - a minority Economic Development Enterprise, the Alpha International Academy of Excellence, The Alpha Community Outreach Program and the Alpha Ethical Society. He was the first African- American to become a member of the Rotary International Club in Thailand and the first African-American to have an audience with His Majesty, the King of Thailand. Because of Dr. Bass’ unique role in effecting positive change in the Thai society, he was personally requested by the American Ambassador to deliver the message to the International Community at a special Memorial Service honoring the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  The author’s life experiences are described in vivid detail in his powerfully moving biographical work entitled Without Vengeance and published in 1999, 2002, and 2003.
