Mack Williams is a writer, musician, and composer who resides in Rahway, N.J. At an early age he demonstrated an aptitude for music just as a music school was being opened two blocks from the family house. He became one of the first piano students at renowned vocalist Dorothy Maynor's Harlem School of the Arts, and represented the school in appearances before former Vice-President Nelson Rockefeller, virtuoso Vladimir Horowitz and numerous wealthy donors, as well as on television and Radio Free Europe.
Mack is a former president of the Rahway Branch of the NAACP, of which he has been a member since 1990. He has coached baseball for the Rahway PAL - as well as tournament and American Legion teams - from 1998 to 2011 and coached PAL basketball league and travel teams from 2001 to 2007. He also served on the Rahway Board of Education from 2001 to 2002.
He is the editor of the critically-acclaimed memoir, "WWII Diary," written by his mother, Winnie Artis Williams. Having heard the readers' wishes for a "WWII Diary" feature film, he has written the screenplay and the project is now in pre-production. His first film, Rich From Within (an adaptation of his originally-written musical play), premiered at the Action On Film Festival in Long Beach, CA in July, 2007, where it was one of the nominees for Best Screenplay. His second film, Your Roommate, won the Best Feature Film award at the PhilaFilm festival in 2013, and his next film, For Old Times’ Sake, was an award-winner at the 2014 PhilaFilm festival. He is the creator, screenwriter and composer for a new TV sitcom entitled Higher Ground, as well as screenwriter for several episodes of the web-based sitcom, Thug Kidz, produced and directed by Kenya Cagle & CaglevisionMultimedia Enterprises.
In addition to being the editor of "WWII Diary" (Facebook.com/wwiidiary), he is the author of the new children's book, "Jackie Robinson and the Negro Leagues" (facebook.com/jackienegroleagues) and the recently-released "Black Quotes Matter" (facebook.com/blackquotesmatter). His blogs have been featured on various sites for years (currently The SEVEN at the7blog.wordpress.com), and became the basis of his first two books: "Voices From The Blue States" and "Sportin' Life: Essays On Sport and Life." Additionally, he has combined his varied interests by producing political radio commercials and PSAs for progressive candidates and causes.
