Book Tour in South Carolina: An Eye-Opener

“What do white people think of your book?” a black Pineville resident asked me in September of 2011.

“Here or at home in California?” I asked.

“Here,” she answered.

“I don’t know,” I responded.  “I don’t know any white people in Pineville or Berkeley County.”

That is the way it has always been for me.  I was afraid of white people in 1965 and I don’t have reason to meet them now because when I visit, I visit in a black section of the county.  However, this trip changed all that thanks to Warner Montgomery, a white man.
