This book is a true story of a wonderful Black man and his family. The man who came from St. Thomas Virgin Island in the early 1920s and settled in Sheffield Alabama where he married a beautiful wife and brought a stylish home during a time when most people barely had food on the table. His unique way of dealing with the nature of prejudice is very noteworthy and challenges examination.
