Reader's Diary #1673- Erskine Caldwell: Kneel to the Rising Sun

Given the recent news out of the U.S., perhaps it's no real surprise why I chose Erskine Caldwell's "Kneel to the Rising Sun" this week.

This is a difficult read but not in the sense that it's poorly written (it's actually quite engaging), but for the topic of racism. Nonetheless it's a powerful story, one that could be especially helpful for those struggling with how to be an ally. (Spoiler: have more courage than Lonnie in this story.)
