  1. Borrow it from the library, Mike. It’s a fine book, essential to anyone who wants to understand Dallas.

  2. I presented a synopsis of this must-read book about the racial history of Dallas for the Urban Engagement Book Club sponsored by CitySquare in November. (We meet twice a month to discuss books on social justice and poverty). Rev. Gerald Britt then led a panel discussion with Jim Schutze, and Rev. Peter Johnson, who was on the front lines in this struggle. You can watch a video of the panel discussion at Gerald Britt’s blog: http://www.changethewind.org/2012/11/the-accommodation-community-conversation.html

    I can assure you, regardless of what you may think about Jim’s columns, that this book was not drivel. It is an honest and sobering look at the local and long-term struggle for basic human rights who were often viewed as something less than equal, to put it mildly.
