Summary
  • Tells the story of growing up in the segregation-era South, in a community that faced adversity and held together with amazing dignity and grace
  • This program chronicles the author's coming-of-age in the segregated South in a time when the Ku Klux Klan terrorized the streets and "White Only" were among the first words learned by African American children. Clifton was encouraged by the love and kinship of the tightly knit community to overcome the bigotry and intolerance of the South, allowing him to embark on an extraordinary journey
