Overview

In the first edition this is what DeWayne (Doc) Johnson: CSUN Professor Emeritus of Journalism and retired Desk Editor of the Los Angeles Times wrote: [�This] is a historical novel, which traces the history of the Hadnot family from Gloucester, England in 1585 to New Orleans with the birth of Lucille Catherine (Celia) Hughes-Hadnot, the matriarch of six families—Briggs, Davis, Daniels, Douglas, Hadnot, and Torry. It is the true story of a Black, family who were never enslaved, but owners of slaves; a tale of a people who regarded themselves as 'neither black nor white.' It is a story of a family—one black and the other white, but related by a common ancestor John Hadot. This novel by Joseph E. Halloway is compelling reading, which explores black culture, history, Jim Crow as well as issues of colorism. Wow! What a masterpiece�it should become a classic and a standard in African American literature.
