He’s one of the most honored and respected African Americans in the world. His life story is the quintessential American dream:  the impoverished black son of an illiterate single mother, reared on the gritty streets of Detroit, nicknamed “Dummy” by his middle school classmates for his poor school performance, becomes an internationally acclaimed pediatric neurosurgeon and is awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  He and his wife have raised and donated millions of dollars since 2004 to award over 2000 college scholarships and create 131 reading rooms in public schools to provide at risk-youth the opportunity to realize their own dreams. His books and biographical movie have been studied in classrooms across American and have inspired untold numbers of Americans of all races.

Now Dr. Ben Carson is a top presidential candidate, with new polls daily showing him edging out the infamous Donald Trump and leaving the rest of the Republican candidates trailing in his dust.

But don’t expect the Tri-State Defender or Commercial Appeal to tell you how to hear him in person tomorrow in West Memphis. They fear his viral appeal because he states his mind, faith, and traditional American values openly, denouncing Democrat leaders who manipulate black voters and the political correctness that silences voices daring to speak the truth. People across the country and around the world are eager to learn more about Dr. Ben Carson and to hear his common sense plans for healing and reviving our country.  Back in River City published a   2013 post about his unpublicized, deliberately ignored speech at the University of Memphis. That post has attracted well over 5,000 readers – our most popular ever – and continues to draw new readers to Back in River City every day.

Eddie and I will be at West Memphis High School tomorrow to hear Dr. Carson. The political rally begins at 6:00 p.m., with doors opening at 4:00.  Click here to register. We will report on the rally next week.

Correction:  Ooops! We goofed up. (Thank goodness no one pays us for this gig.) Kyle Veazey noted Dr. Carson’s West Memphis appearance in his Commercial Appeal column on Tuesday, October 27. We are  CA subscribers and readers, but goblins must have been afoot in our house that day because Eddie and I totally missed it.  We apologize for the error and dig at the CA. Thanks to the vigilant Back in River City reader who informed us of this error. Keep us honest, folks!

      Thanks for noting this, Carole. We stand corrected! Kyle Veazey noted Dr. Carson’s appearance in his column on Tuesday. This occurred after our post was written but before we published. We should have checked again before posting. I will make a correction.
