GROWING UP BLACK IN RURAL MISSISSIPPI: Memories of a Family, Heritage of a Place.
Edition: First printing.
New York: Walker, (1992) dj. Hardcover first edition - A book which is part oral history, part autobiography - a memoir of "the extended Archer family, which weathered the Depression and other travails in Tchula, Mississippi. . . Growing up in the '30s and '40s in a large, warm, self-sufficient family, the author feels that he was in a way insulated from the racial harshness of the urban South. Although he experienced segregation, endured brushes with the Ku Klux Klan and was raised among the 'poorest of the poor,' Archer enjoyed singular richness in family and a heritage of religious faith, ambition and attachment to a bountiful land. , this reflective exploration of roots offers an intimate glimpse of how it once was for particular blacks in the rural Deep South." (Publishers Weekly) Illustrated with photographs. Includes resources for research into Black history, index. xvi, 156 pp. ISBN: 0-802711758.
