Journey with Dr. Fuqua back to a much simpler time in our history then move forward to the present thinking of "Black Lives Matter" and the "MeToo" movement. Because these topics are very much in the forefront of our country, the author felt a need to chronicle her early life growing up on a former slave plantation near her hometown, Fort Valley, Georgia. We Were Innocent illustrates how nave children are in regard to race relations and sexual matters. While she loved many of the Colored people who lived on her fathers large farm and felt sorry for them, she went along with the adults way of thinking that "this is just the way it is". Moving away from Georgia was an eye opener regarding the race situation. Combining her metaphysical beliefs with her life experience with people of many races, she gives her present viewpoint of the racial situation. We Were Innocent also illustrates how a lack of sex education can affect children who have no real knowledge of sex, reproduction, etc. While parents mean well, they should understand how important some knowledge on this subject should be taught to children at a young age. While this book is quite different from Dr. Fuquas earlier book, it is seen as quite timely for this conflicted period in our history.
