Melanin : A Key To Freedom
About the Author
In 1976 King completed a Residency in General Psychiatry at Langley Porter Neuropsychiatric Institute. Also during the 1970s, King came under the tutelage of Dr. Alfred and Bernice Ligon at the Acquarian Spiritual Center in Los Angeles. Dr. Ligon was a metaphysicist who opened Acquarian Book Shop in 1941. The space was the oldest black bookstore in America [*] until it was destroyed during the 1992 Los Angeles uprisings. In 1990, King published "African Origins of Biological Psychiatry." Four years later, King published this second book, Melanin: A Key to Freedom [*], which is currently in its seventh printing.
