Albany- 52 year old Jack Reddick is the author of "The Return of Cotton." The story explains the pain of discrimination and racism he's endured in his life.

Reddick says the book has changed his life and helped him overcome the anger he's dealt with for decades.

"This is my attempt to save a lost generation. This book is not just about me. I thought that I was writing about myself, but as a found out many millions of people had the same story in common," he says.

Reddick is currently working on his second book, "The killing of dogs." He says it's about politics.
