Stories on Racial Awakening

A white Air Force trainee whose eyes were opened while traveling with an African-American classmate on a train through the 1960s South. A young African-American girl who first realized she was black when she encountered a playground bully on an Upstate South Carolina jungle gym. In this book, 20 people share deeply personal narratives of their own racial awakenings. The narratives first appeared in the pages of the South Carolina United Methodist Advocate newspaper, one a month for 20 months. Now, the full collection is available in one handy anthology with discussion questions, a foreword by South Carolina United Methodist Resident Bishop L. Jonathan Holston, and edited with an introduction by Advocate editor Jessica Brodie. (2017)
