"...Not since John Howard Griffin's Black Like Me has a writer so captured the essence of American race relations." -Tom Layne, author of The Assassination of Rush Limbaugh

Since the abolishment of slavery, some issues between White and Black Americans have been resolved, but many persist today. Even without slavery, Whites instilled laws of segregation, started cults like the Ku Klux Klan and performed acts of obscene violence such as lynching.

In Perkins’ riveting alternative history, Looking over Black Shoulders, the question is: What if African-Americans were the dominant power in America 150 years ago and Whites were the ones enslaved? Would the following years be ones of never-before-seen peace and equality, or will the shoe simply be on the other foot?

“I wanted to tackle the perils of racism and bigotry in a new and inventive way,” says Perkins. “With Looking over Black Shoulders I try to answer would the situation be different if the roles were reversed or if there is something far deeper at play.”

As readers will quickly discern, very little changes. “Despite the changing of the guard, so to speak, there is still segregation, still lynch mobs, still racism,” says Perkins. “But, it’s not presented in a way to instill a sense of despair about the situation. Instead, it’s teaching about human nature.”

In Looking over Black Shoulders readers are immersed in a Black America that lives a different yet parallel existence. Over 60 black and white photographs help illustrate similarities such as:
• The Jim Crow Laws: a series of segregation laws set to keep Whites subservient to Blacks
• White face: Blacks paint their faces white and put on skits meant to imitate and ridicule White Americans
• The Black Riders Association: a group of Black extremists who use terror, arson and murder to make certain Blacks stay in power
• The Civil Rights Movement: White Americans demand equal treatment under the law

Perkins is a mental health professional and an ordained elder in the Christian church. He has also served as a law enforcement officer and attended law school. He has a BA degree in Psychology and published his first paper on race relations while serving as a US Army officer at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. He and his wife Sharon live in North Carolina with their three sons.

“The first step in combating racism is for all Americans to see racism the same way,” says Perkins. “My desire is that people will read the book and re-evaluate their views on race relations in this country.”
