“The Sacred Place” a novel by Daniel Black 16 January 2014 6:30pm

In the summer of 1955, a fourteen-year old Clement enters a general store in Money, Mississippi to purchase a soda. Unaware of the consequences of flouting the rule governing black-white relations in the South, this Chicago native defies tradition, by laying a dime on the counter and turns to depart.  Miss Cuthbert the store attendant, demands that he places the money in her hand, but he refuses, declaring, ” I ain’t no slave” and exists with a sense of entitlement unknown to black people at the time. His behavior results in his brutal murder. This event sparks a war in Money, forcing the black community to galvanize its strength in pursuit of quality.

    Hello IYBC,

    We had a wonderful evening of discussion, “The Sacred Place” brought out many facets of race and how it affects each of us personally, If our hearts don’t change about the concerns of race, then our actions are void.

    Until that happens, “What is Your Scared Place”
