Overview

The principle that no child should be left behind is now codified in the laws of the United States, but Jefferson Wiggins grew up in a different United States, under a very different set of laws.

From the night the Ku Klux Klan came to hang his father to the afternoon he received an honorary doctorate in recognition of his life's work, Jeff's memoir is a story of human triumph over adversity, a story of individuals who can and do make a difference in the lives of others. Most of all, his memoir reminds us of the extraordinary stories that often lie below the surface of seemingly ordinary lives. No reader can help but be moved to tears by this compelling, inspirational work.

    Life altering and captivating read!

    'Another Generation, Almost Forgotten' is the type of book that stops you clear in your tracks and transforms you into another time where you become a witness to a man's struggles and triumphs. The struggles and triumphs are so poignant and shocking at times there is no way any human cannot be taken by the fluidity and the descriptions of the author¿s words. I am privileged to say that I not only know the author personally, but I know him a mentor. He has kept his promise to Mrs. Merrill and dramatically altered my life by becoming my mentor, and continuing as my friend. Jeff has been a source of insight, advice, compassion, and inspiration for me and so many others locally whom he has touched. Anyone who reads his book, which now finally is capable of reaching a global audience will forever remember, and hopefully resolve to change their behaviors because of. Jeff has spent his life trying to instill values of social integrity, and tolerance into all those he meets, and his book is a way for each and every person who considers themselves a human, to not begin if they have not already, to act like one. Take with you his guidance, and walk across a bridge that you begin to build with the strength, and the insight of his words. As Jeff has proven throughout his life, one person truly can make a difference, and in my life he really has.
