Book - 2018
Rate this:
"Author Bill Sizemore tells the story of his slave-owning Virginia family, their slaves, and those slaves' descendants--a story that lay buried by a century of denial and historical amnesia. Its threads run through the Civil War, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, the Great Migration, the struggle for civil rights, and the crippling legacy of slavery that still plagues the nation today. In microcosm, it is the story of Virginia and the South. In telling it, Sizemore hopes to advance an essential, if painful, national conversation about race'--page [4] of cover.
