Len Cooper's Village


     Len Cooper is ample proof that every American Black man's story is not the same. He has been a boy in brutal segregated Alabama and an invisible homeless man in the nation's capital. He sought holiness and comfort, entering a monastery to become a priest at a time when the Catholic Church was in denial about racism, homosexuality and robed predators. Still, Cooper rises to become a writer and a world traveler who finds solace and "home" in a land that is supposed to be foreign. Israel.
