My great uncle Judge William Aaron Heathman (1873 - 1973) was an amazing man whose accomplishments were truly exceptional. In my memoir we find that he made an extraordinary contribution to the legal system of America and to the self esteem of African American people. I will relate stories of his losing and regaining eyesight, remarrying in his seventies, driving his own car well into old age, and remaining on the bench until he was 100 years of age. It is with tremendous pride that I include my great uncle William A. Heathman in my story.
