  • Summary: Anthony J. Harris details how teens and adolescents place greater importance on athletics instead of academics

    3 Mar, 2017 – Houston, TX - Dr. Anthony Harris examines the lives of teens and the influence of athletics versus academics in his latest novel, That Which You Do Most Often…Is That Which You Do Best!

    Harris is familiar with the examination of culture in society today.

    As a college professor, lecturer and author, he has published 8 books, including two children's books and a two-part novel, an autobiography of his experiences growing up in Mississippi during the Civil Rights Movement. He was also featured in the PBS Documentary - Freedom Summer.

    His new release discusses and demonstrates both the negative and positive consequences of placing relative importance on either priority.

    During Black History Month, Harris hopes to share his message of enlightenment on this topic where teens are affected throughout all cultures and in America.

    “Too often young men in high school and middle school struggle to make wise choices and good decisions about so many issues, including athletics, friendships, and academics. This book provides an action-packed account of Terrance, a high school freshman, who struggles with balancing his dreams of becoming a professional athlete and being a good student, brother, and son. He discovers that his decisions can make the difference in life and death; success and failure; and joy and sorrow,” says Harris.
