David Martin Stone Senior, is the father of the writer and photographer pictured on the book cover capturing the nineteen forties through sixties. Look for his photographic work in the next Education Without Walls which depicts the chapters in this book. The chapters feature Edith and the Stone family struggling with discrimination and segregation in Detroit before Civil Rights laws. It is an example of triumph over the remnants of their American slave history. The book traces collective and individual resistance against what the non-white population faced. It depicts the sadness and the beauty in their lives before, during and after racial discrimination and the change that would come as the Civil Rights Movement gained acceptance. The strength required in this nation to ease the constraints of segregation in public accommodations, housing, employment and education is a phenomenal story.
