|Summary, etc.:|| "This monumental work reveals the powerful story of a people who have been largely invisible in their own homeland. With extraordinary images and gripping narratives, Ann Miller Woodford opens a door to the homes, churches, and daily lives of the African American people of far western North Carolina. She unflinchingly captures the horrors imposed under Jim Crow, but also the kindness and decency of the mountain people, who offered friendship and a helping hand to their Black neighbors. You can almost hear the music ... you can feel the pain, the heartbreak, the striving. Like any great drama, All God's Children deals with obstacles and tragedy. But, ultimately, obstacles are overcome and tragic circumstances yield to the indomitable human spirit." -- From back cover
