Reviews

Review by: Donald Davis on March 21, 2012 : (no rating)
This book is very informative and enlightening on the racial discrimination that existed in East Texas. While other areas of the country were more highly visible during the Civil Rights Movement of the 50s and 60s, the same problems existed in Nacogdoches, Texas on a similar but somewhat different level of intensity. This book is short and yet it packs a strong punch in describing the interracial relationships that existed during this time period of our history, as well as, it illustrates the many issues that African Americans had to daily persevere to fight inequality and injustice.
