This book presents a set of reflections and ideas for better educating our children. It is also about Emerson Street -- neighborhood and name of the street of the home of the author’s growing up in Austin, Texas. It is about race, class, quality of life, and faith, ending with suggestions about how to move schools toward a better system of academic success for all children and, thereby, impacting the common good and resulting in higher quality of life for all. Also, included is a summary of the Winners Always Practice Program, which is a set of tips on winning strategies for sports games and for life. The author expresses confidence that things can happen for the better; he has kept the faith – in things hoped for and the evidence of things not yet seen.

“In the midst of many societal challenges, Johnny Brown deepens one’s belief that close family ties are significant in shaping the social, spiritual, financial, and moral values of our lives. The illustrations in his book of systemic racism create within us a sincere desire to dispel this societal ill. A calming, yet convincing presentation.”
Joan Mathis, high school and college instructor
