Our goal at PCs for People is to empower people through digital access. Whether it is a low-cost computer, affordable internet, or digital skills, we never get tired of hearing about how technology can impact someone’s life. Author Kevin Phillips reached out to us recently to share the news about his recently published book, Driving While Black: a Memoir of Profiling. Kevin shared that he was able to write his book thanks to the computer he received from PCs for People. Please take a moment to read our Q+A with Kevin about his book and what inspired him to tell this story.
PCs: Congratulations on publishing your book, Driving While Black: A Memoir of Profiling. Can you tell us more about your book and what inspired you to write it?
KP: First of all, I would like to say it is truly an honor, a blessing, and a privilege to speak with PCs for People on this glorious day.
Some users are born into tech while others are forced to learn later in life like me, due to life circumstances that I write more about in my book. I was inspired to write my book about the stories of Tyre Nichols and James Grant of Utah.
PCs: What advice would you give to others who also have a story to tell?
KP: It is as simple as “telling the truth.” That’s it.
PCs: What’s next for you?
KP: What is next for me today is to encourage people to learn about how they can benefit from PCs for People services. And to learn more about my book on my website, https://memoirofprofiling.com. This website hosts my three books based on 1999, 2007, and 2009 legally documented events. These books are also available on Amazon and Kindle.
