The first book that I have read in this era that portrayed an African-American as a human being.
Read it twice. A early psychological study with a happy ending.
A well crafted western that would make a great movie.
This book is the fictional account of the 1898 Wilmington, NC massacre or race riot where local Black officials who were legally elected, were killed or run out of town by white surpremist. This is an extremely well written book by an outstanding author. I reread several passages because the phrasing were spot-on.
