As owner of a successful business that cuts across racial lines and as a political leader in the cause of civil rights, Middleton garnered hard-won recognition for his efforts from blacks and whites alike. His life story is at once illustrative of dynamic developments in southern race relations over the past eight decades and inspirational in telling how one individual capitalized on those changes to perpetuate a legacy of entrepreneurship and service in his community. Knowing Who I Am is Middleton's instructive recounting of his life and a richly detailed chronicle of the changing times in which he lived."--Jacket." ;
