About this title


This book tells the story of the struggles and triumphs of an African American man and his family coming out of the Great Depression through the Civil Rights Movement and into the 21st Century. The central figure is the family?s patriarch whose family lost their farmstead during the depression because of delinquent mortgage and tax bills. Despite this he went on to become a widely recognized builder and Baptist Pastor. Along the way he took some risky and defiant stands against the Jim Crow system that could have cost his life.

About the Author:

Dr. Marvel Lang is a Professor of Urban Studies at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan where he has been employed since 1986. He grew up in rural southeast Mississippi on a farm five miles outside the small town of Bay Springs in Jasper County. His formative years were in the late 1950''s and early 1960''s when the Civil Rights Movement was at its peak in the South. His father, Otha Lang, Sr., was his hero although he lived in constant fear that the Ku Klux Klan would be coming to kill him because he would not bow or conform to the Jim Crow system but stood up and demanded the respect due him as a man. This volume is a testament to the life of Otha Lang, Sr.Dr. Lang received his undergraduate degree at Jackson State University in 1970 with high honor; the M. A. at the University of Pittsburgh in 1975; and the Ph.D. at Michigan State University in 1979. He was president of the senior class at Jackson State in 1970 when the two students were massacred by state troopers just a few days after the Kent State massacre. He was previously a faculty member at Jackson State and also worked at the U.S. Census Bureau in Washington, D.C. as a professional researcher. He has written and published extensively on several topics.
