Summary
"On a cold January morning in 1969, [two] young white... student[s] from Massachusetts, stumbling along the dim trail of a long-defunct radical organization of the 1930s, the Alabama Sharecroppers Union, heard that there was a survivor and went looking for him. In a rural settlement 20 miles or so from Tuskegee in east-central Alabama [they] found him--the man Theodore Rosengarten calls Nate Shaw--a black man, 84 years old, in full possession of every moment of his life and every facet of its meaning...Theodore Rosengarten...had found a black Homer, bursting with his black Odyssey and able to tell it with awesome intellectual power, with passion, with the almost frightening power of memory in a man who could neither read nor write but who sensed that the substance of his own life, and a million other black lives like his, were the very fiber of the nation's history."--book jacket
Summary
Nate Shaw's father was born into slavery. Nate was born into a bondage that was only a little gentler. At the age of nine he was picking cotton behind a mule. At the age of forty-seven, he faced down a crowd of white deputies who had come to confiscate a neighbor's livestock. His defiance earned him twelve years in prison. This triumphant autobiography is the plainspoken story of an "over average" man who witnessed momentous changes in the lives of Southern people, black and white, and whose unassuming courage helped bring those changes about
