Writer's Digest Reviews and Feedback for The Southern Awakening

"The title grabbed my attention and immediately identifies the purpose and potential audiences for your book. Your topic is incredibly timely and this book is in great need to be read by readers of all races: your strong voice and clearly made points will inspire and motivate one part of that audience, and hopefully change some minds of another part. The Introduction does a great job of giving us glimpses into your life and ancestors while reminding us of some very sad truths about the world we live in. The book is well organized and I love your usage of postulates as the organizational method. Your book was at times hard to read because of the myriad injustices that you shed light on, and you do a great job of countering that with moments of joy and inspiration. Even your Dedication is well written—these can often be self-indulgent or maudlin, but yours are delightful and poignant."
