I’m all verklempt. My book Uncle George and Me: Two Southern Families Confront a Shared Legacy of Slavery has attracted more national attention with a very nice review in the current issue of The Humanist magazine.
“A little gem of a book,” the reviewer calls it – “especially timely in this era of Charlottesville and Black Lives Matter.”
The Humanist, incidentally, is a little gem of a magazine – the official organ of the American Humanist Association. Humanists describe their movement as “a rational philosophy informed by science, guided by reason, inspired by art, and motivated by compassion … free of theism and other supernatural beliefs.”
Meanwhile, my ongoing fall book tour takes me to the G.C. Shaw Museum in Oxford, N.C., this Sunday, Nov. 18, 3-5 p.m.
