Go and Come Again
The book begins with a focus on the history and culture of a small town in Appalachia during the era of segregated schools and the concurrent Jim Crow mind-set. Additionally, the author traces his journey—beginning as a student in “separate and unequal” public schools to his multi-decade teaching career.
