"I grew up eighty some years ago in Georgetown, South Carolina, in a South that was rigidly segregated. Blacks were in a tumble-down section of town, whites like my family in simple homes near the paper factory that employed us. On the coast, fabulous mansions of the rich and famous like statesman Bernarch Baruch and baseball's Tom Yawkey rose in splendor among the swamplands. This book is the story of how I moved through high school and college virtually ignoring the growing Civil Rights movement and how, at one multi-racial summertime experience in northern Michigan's Interlochen Music Camp, I was jolted to life -- and a new view of equality I wanted for my own life and for America.
