Leons Story (Sunburst Books) by Leon Walter Tillage

Leons Story is a powerful, wonderful thing! -- Nikki Giovanni I remember that as a young boy I used to look in the mirror and I would curse my color, my blackness. But in those days they didnt call you black. They didnt say minority. They called us colored or nigger. Leon Tillage grew up the son of a sharecropper in a small town in North Carolina. Told in vignettes, this is his story about walking four miles to the school for balck children, and watching a school bus full of white children go past. Its about his being forced to sit in the balcony at the movie theater, hiding all night when the Klansmen came riding, and worse. Much worse. But it is also the story of a strong family and the love that bound them together. And, finally, its about working to change an oppressive existence by joining the civil rights movement. Edited from recorded interviews conducted by Susan L. Roth, Leons story will stay with readers long after they have finished his powerful account.
