Black Man Telling Tales by Barry Davis (short story collection)
This short story collection, based upon the popular blog, features African American themed stories, presenting a unique and robust picture of African American people, their life and times.
This collection opens with the controversial The Man From Money Miss. It is rumored that an elderly African American man participated in the 1950's lynching of young Emmett Till. This crime was so heinous it is credited for jump starting the Civil Rights Movement. If true, what was this man thinking? Why did he bring Emmett's "crime" to the attention of the whites? Why did he agree to comfort Emmett as the boy was led to his death? This story attempts to recreate a demented man's thoughts.
