I think your father came from there. Perhaps your father came from that family. Inside one of them were some words in my father's writing: To my younger brother Ebenezer on his birthday. I couldn't understand it. The writing was my father's, but it was not the writing of a child. So Ebenezer was the younger brother. Then why did he have the family house ? Before my father died, he had very little money. What did it mean? I looked at the books, then cleaned the room. It was a hot day, and I thought,' There'll be rain and lightning later.

In reading this book it was amazing to think of what courage it took for this man to stand up in a time and place where his views could have ended in his death. He truly taught his family well and gave them lessons for life in a way most would never have dared.

A great story and a fitting tribute to a Baptist minister who led the way in fighting for equal rights for all - when other white ministers were turning blacks away at the doors of their churches!

A must read for anyone interested in a bird's eye view of the Deep South during those tumoltuous times.
