"The Sacred Place is a captivating art of storytelling in a time before the Civil Rights Era. This great novel serves as a time machine, helping us revisit our past in hopes of someday reconciling our differences." --Keith A. Beauchamp, Director/Producer, "The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till"

"The Sacred Place is a work of power and depth, reminding us of a recent, painful past that too many of us have tried to forget." --Trey Ellis, author of Platitudes

"The writing is splendidly mature. It ranks among our best new story-telling. In these pages we can rediscover how to be patient with the Universe and its seeming axiom: Freedom costs!" --Jeffery Lynn Woodyard, Ph.D., Independent Scholar and Researcher

"Readers will wonder, applaud, laugh, cry, and share in those intersections where living history makes lived history not only tolerable, but impressively acceptable." --Trudier Harris, author of Summer Snow: Reflections from a Black Daughter of the South

"The Sacred Place is a magnificent illustration of the power of his imagination in which the virtues of courage, sacrifice, and, most importantly, spiritual maturity jump off every page." --Dr. Eddie S. Glaude, Jr., author, Exodus! Religion, Race, and Nation in Early Nineteenth-Century Black America
