Book review

A Tradition of Excellence: The History of Bellarmine College Preparatory’s African-American Student Union sheds light into the African-American history of Bellarmine, but more importantly explains and honors the 25th anniversary story of the first cultural club's establishment at the second oldest Jesuit high school west of the Mississippi River, the oldest high school in the state of California, and the former boarding school connected to Santa Clara University. This historical event told through the eyes of the first African-American employee by way of one of his mentees uniquely hides the name of this catalyst, teacher, coach, administrator, and moderator of the club until the end of the book, allowing the focus of the narrative to be on the actions of the students he mentored. Along with detailing the club 's history and its involvement with the different supporting organizations (100 Black Men of America, Inc & National Association for the Advancement of Colored People-NAACP), the book also highlights the successes of Bellarmine College Preparatory's African-American alumni, who happen to be among some of Silicon Valley's most inspirational and influential people. Most notably the book features the President Barack Obama nominated Acting Associate Attorney General of the United States, Tony West '83 and the stand-out baseball player, Bellarmine College Preparatory's Hall of Fame member and current Director of Player Personnel for the Oakland A's, William "Billy" Owens '89 just to name a few. The author, Julian D. Howard, is donating all net proceeds from this book to create a scholarship fund for graduating club members. www.jdhlibros.com www.juliandhoward.com Twitter: @JulianDHoward *This book is also available for Kindle, but formatting may be changed*
