WILLIAMS, John A(lfred)
(1925-)
   US writer, almost all of whose work has reflected his experiences (including service in WWII) as a US Black. The Man who Cried I Am (1967) posits a Black genocide plot on the part of the US Government,to be put into action in case of civil uprising. Sons of Darkness, Sons of Light (1969) presents a Black revolt centred on Manhattan, comparable toWarren MILLER's The Siege of Harlem (1964) as a MAINSTREAM use of sf material. Captain Blackman (1972) features a time-travelling hero who takes part, as a Black soldier, in all the wars of US history.
