The Grace of Silence: A Family Memoir by Michele Norris
Michelle Norris tells two stories in this book. One is the story of her family. The tale of how her father had been shot by a Birmingham policeman and her investigation to learn more about that incident forms the backbone of much of the story. The other story is that of segregation in the south and what life was for black people - at least for her family and others like them, and what it was like for white people living in the south during that time.
I found it very interesting and I learned things that I did not know.
I got this book free as a goodreads review book and I highly recommend it.
