Red, White, Black, and Blue: A Dual Memoir of Race and Class in Appalachiaby William M. Drennen Jr., Kojo William T. Jones Jr., Dolores Johnson (Editor)
Both born in 1942, William Drennen and Kojo Jones grew up a mile from each other in Charleston, West Virginia, each witnessing a separate side of the racial politics of segregation and desegregation in the Appalachian state. Editor Johnson (English, Marshall U.) has combined the sections of their memoirs that shed light on the experiences of the two men in living with their different racial and class backgrounds, one wealthy and white, the other middle class and black. She also adds her own contribution after the memoirs in the form of a socio-linguistic analysis of the two men's rhetoric on race. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
