    (34)

    "Leave now, or die!" From the heart of the Midwest to the Deep South, from the mountains of North Carolina to the Texas frontier, words like these have echoed through more than a century of American history. The call heralded not a tornado or a hurricane, but a very unnatural disaster: a manmade wave of racial cleansing that purged black populations from counties across the nation.

    Gregory says: "a compelling read with a disappointing conclusion"
    "An Extremely Eye Opening Publication"

    What made the experience of listening to Buried in the Bitter Waters the most enjoyable?

    The performance was outstanding. I enjoyed listening to every single page!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was previously aware that a few (Rosewood, Forsyth County) communities of African Americans had been forcibly removed, but I had no idea that it was such a common event across the US. This book will make you feel as if you were there when the evictions took place. You will understand the emotions of those being removed. Most of all you will learn how the author fought hard for the property rights of those who lost land illegally during these evictions.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book not only for the student of history but also for anyone who is concerned about race relations in the past and present.
