    schema:description ""Jordan got his education with aid from the GI Bill and realized his dream of teaching. But it wasn't enough. Beginning to live according to his conscience, he joined his life to the Civil Rights Movement."--BOOK JACKET. "The voices in this book tell a story whose theme is familiar to legions of African Americans. Yet its particular voices, until now, have gone unheard. Though this is told by a child born in the segregated South, it is also the story of a family's triumph over a dark heritage, a story of a childhood that casts away a centuries-old tradition of insult and denial to embrace a heritage of freedom and love."--Jacket."@en ;
