About Book

One Black Man
Growing Up

Chad Church is a respected entrepreneur and businessman, recognized in the esteemed Marquis Who’s Who in America for the year 2023. However, his accomplishments extend far beyond the realm of business. Church’s life experiences and his unique perspective as an African American have shaped his identity as a first-time American author.

Growing up in a bucolic seaside town in Massachusetts, Church’s family was among the pioneers, one of the first few black families to move from Boston to the suburbs of the South Shore during the tumultuous racial strife of America’s late 1960s. This early encounter with adversity and his exposure to different cultural dynamics would later become pivotal in his personal and intellectual development.

Church pursued his studies in Broadcast Journalism at Eastern New Mexico University, where he had his first taste of cultural immersion beyond the boundaries of his New England upbringing. This exposure ignited a passion for exploration and understanding, prompting Church to embark on a journey that would take him across the United States and around the globe.

In “One Black Man for a White Friend,” Chad Church pens a heartfelt and deeply personal account of his lifelong friendship with John Michael Hommel. Through vivid recollections and introspective musings, Church takes readers on a poignant journey that spans from their idyllic childhood in a coastal Massachusetts town to the far corners of the world.

The book opens with nostalgic reminiscences of their shared adventures as young boys, exploring nature, engaging in passionate debates, and dreaming of a future filled with endless possibilities. Church reflects on the bond they forged, grounded in trust, mutual understanding, and an unbreakable camaraderie. Their friendship was a sanctuary where they freely exchanged secrets, fears, and hopes, convinced that they would navigate life’s paths together well into old age.

However, tragedy strikes when Hommel’s life is cut short, leaving Church grappling with grief and a profound sense of loss. Determined to honor their shared dreams and the legacy of his dear friend, Church embarks on a journey of self-discovery and growth.
