Meet & Greet with Pat DuVal, author of “From Colored Town to Pebble Beach”
August 23, 2014 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Pat DuVal was born and raised in the Colored Town section of Fort Pierce, Florida at a time when segregation was harsh, and it looked like blacks and whites would never live in harmony. Pat escaped the ugliness of the Deep South when went into the Army. When he finished his service at Ft. Ord in California, he became the first black deputy in Monterey County. There he found a much more diverse culture. It was quite startling at first but he was a true pioneer. It was also in California that Pat followed his dream of singing, everything from opera to country to rock-‘n-roll, and where he earned the moniker of The Singing Sheriff. This book recounts his journey.
