    Enlightenment

    Many of us BabyBoomers achieved our majority during these crucial years - 1964-1976. It was a time of turmoil and change in the U.S. and the beginning of what is now a deeply held distrust of Washington DC officeholders. Jerry Mitchell is an excellent newspaper journalist - one who has always had the pulse of the U.S. citizens and has always told it like it is, regardless of whom it exposes or offends. This memoir too is cutting edge, an authentic look into racial divides in especially the south in this timeframe, and the lengths some prejudiced southerners were able to go to to keep the status quo. Generations of southern citizens willing to perpetuate Jim Crow ideology into each new generation of potential voters - white voters - borne to southern women, women almost as deeply sinned against at that time as were the Blacks and First Nation Citizens. A voiceless injustice that still prevails today in isolated places. Race Against Time is an excellent reckoning of those crimes, those tumultuous times in the deep south. Mitchell follows the trials of the Klan members and even the odd policeman who was responsible for some of these atrocities - trials trailing 40 years after these hate crimes were committed. Many of the perpetrators had already died of old age before this light of enlightenment was shed on these crimes. We need to ensure that this sort of prejudice cannot happen in our children's time and their kid's generation as well. Please, get out there, and VOTE! 1 like
