A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great. (Proverbs 18:16 NIV)
WOMAN OF EXCELLENCE
To her credit, Dr. Geneva Jones Williams has written eight books to date.
Neither one, it seems, stands out more than her awe-inspiring written work, Justice On The Jersey Shore: How Ermon K. Jones Ignited Change And Won.
“I’ve always wanted to write a book about my dad as I watched him on a regular basis create change,” Dr. Williams, a Detroit-based author, told Making Headline News this week.
And what a remarkably compelling, life-altering book it is, one that, much to the delight of Dr. Williams, has given way to a rash of rave reviews.
Said Dr. Michael Brantley, Mayor of Neptune Township, New Jersey, Dr. Williams’ native establishment: “The history of the fight for equality, especially when it comes to fairness in housing, is not told in its entirety without including the progressive work of Mr. Ermon K. Jones. Whether it was as a proud member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, as President of the Asbury Park Branch of the NAACP, or anywhere in between, Ermon spent his life putting the words “service to community” into action.”
Said Dennis W. Archer, former President, American Bar Association, National Bar Association, State Bar of Michigan, and former Mayor of Detroit: “Ermon K. Jones used courage, conviction and every legal tool available to change the course of history in a critically important era. He made life better for us and for generations to come by opening doors to better housing and improved education. Dr. Geneva Williams has written a book that is both a tribute to her father and a key to her own impressive record of civic engagement.”
Said the Honorable Damon J. Keith, Senior Judge, United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit: “Ermon K. Jones was a member of a dynamic new vanguard that arose in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s to lead America and the world into an unprecedented era of racial justice and social progress. Initially motivated by their personal determination to pursue every opportunity and enjoy every benefit that our Constitution affords to all U.S. citizens, Mr. Jones and his contemporaries were young, Black civic leaders who eventually joined together in collective efforts to pursue freedom and fairness for all. Dr. Geneva Jones Williams brilliantly shares her father’s challenges and triumphs in Justice on the Jersey Shore: How Ermon K. Jones Ignited Change and Won. I highly recommend this book for all who desire a more intimate understanding of the Civil Rights Movement – in particular, the difficulties confronted and overcome by regional leaders like Ermon K. Jones, who functioned outside of the national spotlight but made lasting contributions to our continual quest to form a more perfect Union.”

A book that is accompanied by 174 pages, Dr. Williams’ Justice On The Jersey Shore: How Ermon K. Jones Ignited Change And Won vividly demonstrates the power of inspired leadership, most notably how what this writer appropriately describes as an “ordinary person,” one who can use his or her personal influence to transform reality, according to a detailed synopsis of this book at Amazon.com.
“In this riveting, true story of how a spiritual, soft-spoken basketball star became a fearless advocate for the oppressed and powerless in his community, a decades-old battle for social change gains new relevance,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Dr. Williams’ book. “Ermon K. Jones’ two college degrees, sports fame, charisma, and good looks meant nothing when he was denied the right to apply for a job and buy a new house in his own hometown.
“How he fought back against a segregated society, outdated thinking, and even hate crimes made a lasting difference for his family and for the lives of countless others.” In essence, Dr. Williams, widely regarded as an expert on influential leadership, steadfastly uses an assortment of emotionally-driven interviews with her heroic father, her own recollections, and the historic record to share a slew of memorable lessons from the past that subsequently can help resolve the worst conflicts and divisions of our time, an mention the Amazon introduction of undoubtedly has emerged as her featured book.

His light inspires us to do extraordinary things even though each of us is ordinary yet special in His sight.”
REMEMBERING MR. ERMON
Interestingly enough, Dr. Williams began composing her featured books months before her father passed away on May 7, 2016.
“After discussing it with him and other family members for many years, I finally persuaded my dad, and we sat for the first recorded interview in 2015,” Dr. Williams recalls. He read the final manuscript before he passed.”
Published officially in April 2019, Dr. Williams’ Justice On The Jersey Shore: How Ermon K. Jones Ignited Change And Won has been nothing short of impressive since its much-anticipated debut.
“My father inspired me to be tireless in serving others” said Dr. Williams, “and in making a positive difference in all walks of life.”
