More Description

So proclaims Lorraine Johnson-Coleman in this heartwarming collection of stories and essays. Returning to the cotton fields, tobacco barns, and humble dwellings of her ancestral home in the rural South, Johnson-Coleman learned firsthand what is missing from African American history texts: the experience of ordinary people who have led extraordinary lives. The stories she brings together in Just Plain Folks -- stories of the sort that have made her a standout among the regular contributors to National Public Radio's Morning, Edition -- reveal folk culture as a continuum, a vital link to the past that can illuminate the experience of African Americans today.
