This brought tears to my eyes. How many shameful times were families wrenched apart and hearts and spirits broken?
This is hard to read, but loaded with raw historical truth that must never be forgotten. God Bless~
Some of the most beautiful gospel music ever written was by people with the kind of emotional depth you have penned here. Great job presenting this particular era and segment of history.

This was absolutely painful to read. So vivid, I felt like I was there - and I hated being there! A testament to your evocative writing. Perfect title too.
