BETTER THAN THEM, THE UNMAKING OF AN ALABAMA RACIST

index

I have not read this book, but I have read about it and checked it out on Barnes and Noble. Pulitzer Prize winning author S. McEachin Otts has written a memoir about changes in the southern part of the United States.   The book: Better Than Them, the Unmaking of an Alabama Racist – “You are better than them. Don’t forget it,” a grandmother whispers to her grandson, S. M. “Mac” Otts. The year is 1965, and an eighteen-year-old boy stands curbside in his Black Belt hometown-weapon in hand-defiant before a peaceful civil rights demonstration.”
