    Kudos

    More than informative and a snapshot into the past of black americans of coastal Georgia, this book is written with a sense of repletion that makes any native of the area stand proud.

    A great addition to African American history in coastal Georgia

    Glynn County, Georgia,gives readers a poignant look at important African American history in the sea islands of Georgia. It is a breathtaking look at how blacks went from slavery to freedom in Brunswick, St. Simons Island, and Jekyll Island. This is a must for reading for all who want to gain factual knowledge of blacks during slavery and in the Civil War. I really enjoyed reading about black accomplishments in education, the arts, and the professions in Glynn County, Georgia.

    Excellent!

    I thought this book was wonderful and very informative. It is refreshing to see books written by the locals about their heritage. The pictures were great and I believe that there should be more written to inform people of the struggles and the legacy of their foreparents. It is also amazing to see how many people made a significant contribution to society that we are not aware of.
