Front Cover
iUniverse, Jun 22, 2007 - Biography & Autobiography - 276 pages
More than sixty-five years after the end of the American Civil War, African-Americans still dealt with the debilitating poverty of sharecropping and the Depression, and the violence of the Ku Klux Klan during the 1930s. Two African-American brothers, James and Robert Paschal, persevered despite these limitations and realized their dreams through years of hard work and determination.

Serving Up Hope and Freedom is the moving true story of the Paschal brothers from Georgia. Fighting against the odds of a sharecropping life, James and Robert went on to become millionaires, philanthropists, world-renowned restaurant/hotel owners, and leaders in the struggle for civil rights.

As told by James Paschal, this memoir showcases the brothers' extraordinary devotion to making a difference in the world, inspiring others to tap into the unlimited power of their dreams. Their legacy will continue to provide hope, inspiration, and encouragement for future generations.
