I’m trying to understand the simple cruelty behind the entrenched tribalism in the United States. I just finished “How the Word is Passed” by Clint Smith and I am still reeling. His book is a recollection of his visits, pilgrimages really, to significant locations of Slave keeping and the transactions relating to Enslavement. I wept after reading the accounts, especially the memories of his grandparents’ childhoods in the American South.
