KLIATTWhen Eubanks was a boy in Mississippi in the 1950s and '60s, he was aware of the tensions between the races, but he was also protected by the security of his middle class family and well-respected parents. Only when he was grown did he begin to understand all the conflicting forces that surrounded him as he grew up. In 1998, the declassification of the State Sovereignty Commission records revealed to him that he and his family had been more involved than he knew. Through multiple trips back home to Mississippi and interviews with people on all sides of the political turmoil, he finally understood what he and his parents had been living with. When he brings his young sons to his own childhood Mississippi, the circle becomes complete. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2003, Perseus, Basic Books, 234p. illus., Ages 12 to adult.
