Editorial Reviews

Bill Buckner
This was a wonderful trip down memory lane. This book was fun because it takes place where I grew up and it helped me recall my childhood. I remember playing baseball in the same parks mentioned in the story. I spent the majority of my life playing or coaching professional baseball. My most memorable baseball experiences came on these very same playgrounds a few years before this story takes place.
William Anderson
Only Keith Anderson could have written “Elijah In Ce”. As a black youth growing up in a white world in the turbulent sixties, author Anderson could have written this book as a paean to racism and violence. He did not. It is a warm, witty, factual account of an African American family who faced prejudice with grace and good humor. The reader is not hit over the head with the message of racial understanding, yet it emerges loud and clear.
