About this title

Synopsis:

These classic novels, set during the Civil Rights era, follow the early years of David Williams, a young man who in the face of violence and bigotry struggles to keep alive his dream of becoming a doctor. A foreword by Rudine Sims Bishop and an afterword by the author's daughter, Ruth Graham Siegrist, Ph.D., place these remarkable novels in the context of their time (South Town was originally published in 1958.) Through the character of David Williams, young readers witness a turbulent era in American history, a period marked by unspeakable injustice and life-affirming hope.

About the Author:

Lorenz Graham (1902-1989) was a pioneer of African American literature. Like Langston Hughts and Richard Wright, he wrote at a time when few books offered a realistic view of African American life. He is also the author of Tales of Momolu; I, Momolu; Every Man  Heart Lay Down; and How God Fix Jonah, an ALA Notable Book.
