The University of Toledo
1. Protest the injustices created by the apparent dereliction of duties of some university leaders, professors and
2. Garner from university leaders, professors, and administrators the remaining steps required for me to complete
my doctoral degree.
3. Address the apparent dereliction of duties issues for me and for all students who face similar circumstances.
BOOK SALES WILL BE USED TO FINANCE THE TRIP. The backdrop of the story is a Sunday morning service at Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church. Reverend R. D. Hunt is the Pastor. Reverend James Thomas, Pastor of Jefferson Street Missionary Baptist Church, helped lead the charge for educational justice on my behalf. In the book, I used my faith to fight the system. This bicycle protest ride is intended to start a dialogue across the country among students; parents; teachers; professors and administrators; policy makers; subject matter experts; professional, community, and health organizations; and ministers regarding a university’s role in supporting the educational goals of its students.
To eliminate professor/administrator-to-student academic bullying in all higher education institutions.

University while in pursuit of a doctoral degree. I will also request a January, 2007 meeting with him to:
