5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Nate., January 4, 2001
This review is from: All God's Dangers: The Life of Nate Shaw (Paperback)
Nate Shaw was the father of my Uncle Oscar Turner's best friend. His real name was Nate Cobb and the family of the son, Lorraine, is prominent in the Middletown, Ohio ghetto.
The author has done a masterful job of illustrating how greatness was thrust upon him. Nate never set out to become a hero, only to protect his own dignity and provide for his children.
I do not believe that there is a better book for teaching about the lies of 20th century sharecroppers. Theirs is an overlooked legacy.

You must be very proud--was he not called Ned Cobb? He was a VERY great man.
How do you rate Hosea Hudson or Ella Baker or Mrs Fannie Lou Hamer?
