Vantage Press

In Lee D. Young’s riveting memoir L.D.: Rocketry, Race, and a Colorful Journey, the author shares his life story: “Not just another Black social horror story; rather it is the story of one Black man who, with a blend of spirituality, determination, persistence and a few lucky turns, managed to survive pre-civil rights southern bigotry and make significant contributions to an industry in which few Blacks have been recognized…Rocketry!”


Mr. Young is a 1957 Graduate of Tennessee State University
