John M. Perkins was born 80 years ago in the deep South. His mother died when he was an infant, his father left when he was a child, he dropped out of school after the third grade to work with his family of bootleggers and he witnessed police shoot and kill his brother. Perkins himself was the object of violent racism, and in 1970 he was severely beaten by police in a Mississippi jail. He had every reason to respond with bitterness. Instead, he forgave and showed love to all. In these memoirs, he revisits the racism which was the crucible of his own life, peers deep into the power of love to overcome evil and speaks of the most unique characters you will ever meet. He stands up in the wake of Katrina, stands by his wife’s side through the toughest days of their lives and casts a vision that has the potential to transform every city in America.
