The Other Two-Fifths is another reminder of how we treat one another and how so many lives are affected forever. Early writes from experience, having lived through the Civil Rights era, seen all the horrors, and will always remember. I highly recommend this book for all races and religions. We must stop being judgmental and prejudiced. Must. — CJ Loiacono
