TGIF

I just finished reading Blood Done Sign My Name by Timothy B. Tyson. It's his story of growing up in small town North Carolina during the days of the civil rights struggle. It's a compelling read for anyone interested in learning more about the history of race relations in the United States, particularly North Carolina. There are things in the book that have been ignored by most historians. When the movie comes out, go see it. My daughter, Jennie worked as a location assistant so you'll see her name in the credits.

Here's the good stuff this week:
