Guest column A thought-provoking book discussion

Posted: Wednesday, February 26, 2014 12:00 am

As we embrace and remember the history of many African-Americans who lived in these United States of America, there are many discussions that will be taking place among family, friends and groups throughout Galveston County and abroad. 

I am grateful for the experience of being a part of the book discussion group at the Hitchcock Public Library. The book “The Warmth Of Other Suns” tells the story of the exodus of 6 million blacks who migrated to the North, East and West from the treacherous South. This was during a time in history when there was tremendous racism, unjust laws, biases, lynchings and other incomprehensible events and activities that suppressed and oppressed the black race.
