Bu kitabı her yıl en sevdiğim tatil Cadılar Bayramı çevresinde okumayı seviyorum.
In The Grace of Silence, Minneapolis native and NPR host Michele Norris selects specific incidents from her family's history to shine a light on America's ongoing issues with race. She makes connections between the rash of police murders of returning black WWII veterans to her own father's confrontation with the Birmingham, Ala. police in 1946; the enduring symbol of Aunt Jemima as the contented slave, and her own grandmother's work as a traveling Aunt Jemima in the late 1940s and '50s; and her own parents "block busting" in 1961, when they were the first black family to buy a house on the 4800 block of Oakland Ave. in south Minneapolis. The Grace of Silence has been chosen for a city-wide community read in Minneapolis in fall 2011, and Minneapolis residents should be especially interested in learning more about why black people came to Minneapolis after WWII and the challenges they faced trying to make a life there. The book is not preachy and it's not dry. In fact, in researching and telling her family's story, Norris takes us along on an emotional journey that leads to easy understanding.
