The Pettis Norman Story



Pettis Norman lives his life guided by one basic principle:

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

                                                                                            Luke 6:31

You won’t want to miss reading about the kid from Georgia who became an iconic Dallas Cowboy, civil rights leader, veteran, businessman, racehorse breeder, and friend to several presidents and presidential contenders.

The book is filled with fascinating anecdotes from business titans who worked with Pettis on some of most challenging issues in Dallas — some legendary and some never before published. This is a big, sweeping story spanning eighty years — an insider’s view of sports, politics, race relations and the anomaly of being a successful black businessman in the Deep South.

With the power elite and power brokers as Pettis’ closest friends, the potential to do good was tremendous. The communities in and around the “Big D” — and the nation — are better for it.
