About the Book

Daddy Jim’s Timeless Expressions are poetic writings coupled with a creative compilation of reflections by James A. Howard. A highly respected man of color born in Sandy Point, Maryland in 1912. Known, lovingly by his family as “Daddy Jim” and referred to as “Jim Howard or Mr. Howard”. He was known as a distinguished community leader by so many long-time residents in the historical Deanwood community in Washington DC. Although his work was historically written during unequivocal challenging times for Blacks in US history, the compositions resonate a sense of relevancy and authentic optimism that personifies his identity as a proud Nego in the United States of America. An unbridled display of joy and pain, and recognizable significance of community emersed in an astute dedication to Justice for all.
