View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Since man had been placed on Earth's surface he has had to struggle to better his conditions and to survive. Some accept their fate, others cry, and a chosen few fight to make right that which they perceive as wrong. Between 1870 and 1910 most of the black people in the United States were illiterate and systematically deprived of an education. It is against this background that Moses Leroy Davis, the son of a black Mississippi share cropper was provoked into actions to alleviate the conditions of his people by extripating ignorances and substituting the obsolete status quo with actions superseding somnolence.

Throughout this difficult and seemingly impossible task, his wealthy, aristocratic white friend Johnathan (Little John) Smith assisted him in overcoming his adversaries.
