This uncompromising, heartbreaking memoir explores how good Christian folk acquiesced to the terror of the KKK and how the author''s father, a prominent Baptist minister, eventually found the courage to share in the vision of a new South.
From the Publisher:
Seeking to come to terms with the haunting memories of his childhood in the Deep South, the author offers a memoir of a small-town Southern life caught up in the whirlwind of the Civil Rights movement and the KKK.
The Last Days is something entirely different in the literature of the civil rights movement of the 1960s. This uncompromising, heartbreaking memoir shows how people struggled with the actual processes of integration. Seeking to come to terms with the haunting memories of his childhood and adolescence in the Deep South, Charles Marsh has crafted a gripping story of small-town Southern life caught up in the whirlwind of the civil rights movement and its fallout.
Seeking to come to terms with the haunting memories of his childhood in the Deep South, the author offers a memoir of a small-town Southern life caught up in the whirlwind of the Civil Rights movement and the KKK. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.
Annotation:
This memoirist remembers his childhood in the quagmire of race relations deep in Mississippi in the 1960s. The son of a preacher, Marsh recalls his father's role in desegregating their small town, and his own impressions of events as a schoolboy.
