Thank you, Ben Sheperd, for including me on your list of BEST BOOKS About Growing Up in the Jim Crow South.
I remember the separate drinking fountains, the separate restrooms, the separate theatre seats, even the separate cemeteries.
So, too, do the authors of the books that accompany Ben’s feature of my book, SPITE FENCES. I’m blessed to be in the company of Colson Whithead, Toni Morrison, and Harper Lee.
