I enjoyed the reading. I could sense the intensity, apprehension and overall triumph these students felt throughout the book.
I like the clarity of context. Even though this was 50 years ago I understood the surroundings and experienced the transition these student had to make. I related completely to their challenge as my own was similar...only 20 years later.
The subtlety of Hoffman's read gave me a sense of the sincerity the white students, Dean, President and the community had in interacting with these new students and how they effected their lives in such memorable ways.
Clarence Thomas is as he is today because this is how he was then.
