Fulton Books Author, S.J. Hendricks, a retired business owner and former teacher, has completed his most recent book “The Sociology Project”: a well-written narrative about two students of different races who start to date each other as part of a sociology project. They look into dating in 1967 and find out how society treats interracial couples by going through firsthand experience.
Hendricks shares, “What if there were two students who decided to experiment with interracial dating in 1967? That’s exactly what happens when a black girl and a white boy take a course in Senior Sociology Seminar at a Christian university in southeastern Wisconsin. They decide to do a project for the semester where they will engage in a fake dating scenario. Interracial dating at that time is completely taboo. The reader gets to follow the couple throughout the course of the semester and experience all the racial bigotry, insults, threats, and prejudice from family, friends, and strangers. The girl’s father refuses to acknowledge their relationship and forbids his daughter from seeing the white boy. An unforeseen development occurs that the couple never expected. Just when the couple thought their romance was over, an unusual twist occurs at the end of the story that surprises everyone.”
Published by Fulton Books, S. J. Hendricks’ book is an engrossing novel about a couple who started their relationship as an experiment. From there, they discover more than what they expected: society and each other.
Tied with interesting twists and still-timely issues, this book will capture readers and take them along an informative and exciting journey.
