I know Tommy Lightfoot Garrett very well. He's done a lot with his career and must have really made it. His agent is my next door neighbor in San Francisco and he says even a Tabloid took a swipe at him and lied. You know someone in this industry has made it when they make it in a nasty tabloid. But what a great piece on him in this book about Great Buckamites and great Americans. With so many negative things written today, it's great to see a modern history book speaking so highly of its citizens. However, Tommy Garrett has done a lot more than is mentioned in this book. He is not only an author of almost a half dozen books - can be found on Amazon under Tommy Lightfoot Garrett. But he's also got a syndicated TV series about classic Hollywood, guest starred with his friends Ed and Rachelle Begley, Jr. on HGTV's "Living With Ed." Also available here on Amazon. But he's Editor in Chief of Canyon Newspaper in Beverly Hills, an entertainment publicist in Hollywood and a spectacular charming man. Then there's Miss Clarice Taylor. I wish the authors had gone into her distinguished Broadway career, and didn't we love her as Cousin Emma on an episode of "Sanford & Son" back in the 70's? This book also has the legendary Carter Godwin Woodson, who grew up in the same community Tommy Garrett did. This is a book that is fascinating for anyone who hails from Buckingham, Virgina but also for anyone interested in the History of African Americans in the south. I'm a West Coast white person who has followed Mr. Garrett's career many years and hope to see more of him in upcoming books. Kudos to Mr. White and Ms. Ingram. Great book and great history.

Format: Paperback
So many wonderful photos of Buckinghamites, some that brought back memories of people my mother and grandparents knew. I grew up in NYC in the '50s-'60s but spent summers in Buckingham with my grandparents, Jesse and Gertrude Kyle. All of my best childhood memories hail from those summers, particularly memories of the annual revival meetings/family reunions held the weekend of the second Sunday in August - huge family breakfasts, Grandma preparing enormous quantities of food to take to church for the feast that always followed the morning service, everyone scrambling to get ready for church in the meantime, travelers' clothing and suitcases scattered about in the bedrooms upstairs. Lena Kyle Somerville, my aunt, was thrilled to see photos of her old school, Buckingham County Training School. I wish that my mother, Doris Kyle Jones, had lived long enough to enjoy this book. There was only one disappointment - no mention was made of any member of the Kyle and Spencer families or the place where they worshiped, St. Joy Baptist Church. The Kyles and Spencers were and continue to be strong thread in the fabric of Buckingham and deserved to at least have one person recognized from each of the two families. Barring those omissions, I highly recommend this book to those who love Buckingham.

If you are a native of Buckingham County, Virginia, this book provides no new information. The content is seemingly information and pictures garnered from family and friends. It is more than likely, some student's report on Black History of the county.
Look for this book in the Buckingham County middle school's library. That is where it belongs.

I enjoyed this little picture/history book quite a bit. I am from this area in VA and have many relatives living in Buckingham County. The pictures were of familiar places and made me homesick. It was an interesting read if you enjoy reading local history of a small community.
