I just listened to the most amazing interview with the author of this book on WBUR's Here and Now. Lynda Blackmon Lowery is a powerful voice for history and civil rights. The interview brought me to tears numerous times and I knew I had to read her book. I cannot wait to get it from the library! Thank you for having it in the library's collection of books.
