Great Book!

I had to read this book for a college course, but while reading it, I was able to meet the author. After listening to commentary from the author, I realized how important this book was to history. Dr. Tyson used a lot of historical facts to incoporate into his personal story. Especially if you are NC or the south, it is a must-read! It is definitely thought-provoking to think how different the world is today.

This is a painful story to read. Having grown up years after the events describe in this book in the same town and growing up friends with memebers of both families, it is shocking. As a child I had never heard of this event, just 15 years afterward it was rarely discussed. I had close friends in both the Teel and Marrow families. Reading this was challenging. While the book provides great insight and review of events, it still causes pain. The younger Teel's being critized and threatened for their older generations actions. It brings back to the surface pain, fear and the reality that racisim last today. The younger Teel are fearful to say their name because they will be harrashed, barated, or beaten for actions they themselves did not do. While a insightful book, it is a book that has caused more pain and suffering than it was really worth.
