America Dearest: Reflections of America's Child

Front Cover
Via Press, 1999 - African Americans - 396 pages
Before the Civil Rights Movement, what was the inner life of a Black child, growing up in the South; or for children whose hopeful parents moved them north? And what about after Dr. Martin Luther King's awareness campaign, after the new civil rights laws? What changed? Has anything changed? To paraphrase Yeats, words can serve human liberty or, if allowed, words can oppress; but the same words can change the whole world.
