ME AN' ANDREW is a story of love and friendship. It is the story of two 11-year-old boys, Andrew Craghead, who is white, and Joe Willie Drummond, who is black. Andrew is the victim of a severely abusive father, and as a result of this abuse, Andrew is psychologically mute. Andrew is befriended by Joe Willie Drummond, who is determined to shield Andrew from the abuse of his father.
Set in Georgia in the middle 1940's, this is the story of 2 boys who fight evil in their own families with the kind of love that shows no description of race. The boys show a relationship between black and white in the Deep South at a time that few ever realized could exist.
About the author
Biography Dr. Robert Martin Screen was born in Augusta, Georgia and was among the last graduating class at Haines Institute. He went on to receive his bachelor's degree in English from Hampton Institute, his M. A. degree in Speech Pathology from New York University, and his Ph.D in Audiology and Speech Sciences from Michigan State University. His further study also included a one-year stay at the University Iowa's Writer's Workshop. It was this period in his training that launched Dr. Screen’s career in writing, and as a result, he has published three textbooks and three novels. Dr. Screen returned to his alma mater, Hampton Institute and founded the Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders, which he has shared since 1963. During this period of time the department also initiated a master's degree program, and this program has never failed to meet the standards for ASHA (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association) accreditation. A major factor in Dr. Screen's tenure at Hampton has been his role as Head Tennis Coach since 1970. During this time at Hampton, he has won 37 Championships in 35 years. Since moving to Division 1 in the MEAC Conference he has won 13 Championships in 11 years (8 Men and 5 Women). Dr. Screen is the only African American Tennis Coach to have won a National Championship in Tennis, and he did this twice, in 1976 and 1989 when Hampton was still in Division II of the NCAA. As of this writing (Summer 2006), Dr. Screen has amassed 982 wins. He is the 3rd coach in tennis history to reach the mark of 1,000 victories. Dr. Screen is the only African American Coach to be recipient of the NCAA National Coach of the Year (1985). He has also won 23 Conference Coach of the year Awards, in both the CIAA and MEAC.
