Book Summary

Cassie Logan endures humiliation and witnesses the racism of the KKK as she grows up in Depression-era Mississippi. She learns from her mother, a schoolteacher who refuses to use textbooks that whitewash slavery, and her father, who stops a lynch mob, what it really means to fight back.
