Southern Discomfort: One Black Man and One White Man Change Segregation
H Dwight Kelsey (Author)
DescriptionAs a 10 year old sharecropper's son, James Walker's life is jolted by witnessing the lynching of his cousin. With guidance from his Baptist minister and his proud Aunt Violet, he digs out from a legacy of slavery, but finds himself battling segregation at every stage of his life. Tom Stirling, a contemporary born in the 1940's to a white Georgian plantation owner, is steeped in traditional southern values. He is brought up to believe colored persons are intellectually inferior. Stirling's childhood friend with KKK roots pulls his toward the dark side of racism. During the 1960's, he meets James Walker in an Air Force training program in Biloxi, Mississippi and begins a personal transformation.
