Alabama's Redemption: A Story of Racial Segregation in America
Marathon Publications Inc, Jun 24, 2011 - 310 pages
It was good to be white then. The year was 1946. Surviving American soldiers, sailors, and airmen returned victorious from the terror and dangers of WWII. White soldiers found parades in their honor, jobs, eager women, and an adoring country. Black soldiers, who had suffered and performed in the same manner as their white counterparts, came back to a country which still insisted on their subservience. This was especially true in the South, where the god Segregation ruled with an iron hand. Yet Rosa Parks, the Reverend Martin Luther King, the University of Mississippi, and JFK were right around the corner. Into this cauldron comes a young black soldier, a hero of the war, who wants nothing more than the opportunity to buy land, acquire a wife, and raise a family. In a powerful story of faith, character, perseverance, and romance, he faces crushing prejudice, unfair obstacles, and the threat of death. In the end, he meets his greatest enemy and discovers his greatest love.
