Format: Paperback
This is a powerful book, much more than a story of one city. It's an AMERICAN story. Highly recommended for anyone interested in race relations in the USA.

I found this balanced and very good at describing the political environment in Macon for most of the 20th century. I was looking for something that also would have given a better idea of the every day lives of Black and White in Macon at various periods, which was not really addressed. But, for a summary of the political battles over segregation, Jim Crow laws, how race was used for political purposes in multiple decades, civil rights agitation, and progress on desegregation it is a good read and scholarly summary.

2 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Macon Guy on October 11, 2010
Format: Paperback
The author of this book misses a great opportunity. I bought this book with enthusiasm only to throw it in the garbage. It paints a picture that focuses on certain people and periods heavily, while completely leaving out large parts of Macon's history and the people involved in it. This book is meant to make certain individuals look good. It was written with a strong agenda and will lead the reader astray. It is unfortunate that the backers of the book and the author chose to proceed with their biased desires instead of thinking and being objective and balanced. History doesn't need this kind of inaccurate representation, especially from someone who calls himself a historian.
