A Book in Review: Dixie

Dixie A Personal Odyssey Through Events That Shaped the Modern South By:Curtis Wilkie
Non-Fiction: history, Memoir 336 pages
Book Count: 48

This is the life story of a journalist who grew up in the south and was around during many of the key points in the Civil Rights Movement. He grew up in a family that was against the racism of the South, but still didn't actively oppose the unwritten rules of behavior regarding races in the South until after the movement started. As he was a journalist who covered southern news, political campaigns and the Middle East, it includes lots of stories and thoughts that you will not get in a history book.
