Bestselling author and critically acclaimed journalist Ellis Cose wades into the debate to reveal how this Constitutional right has been coopted by the wealthy and politically corrupt.
Marked by Fire follows Abyssinia Jackson from birth through adolescence in the 1950s and 60s. You get tornadoes, cotton plantations, Black church and community, girlhood and womanhood, sisters and mothers loving and gossiping over quilt making and prayers circles.
