Horace Hall, Green County, Alabama

My Brother J-Boy, about James H. Meredith, is truly a work to be read and enjoyed by young and old. The message of love, devotion to family, strength, and courage found in this family in rural Mississippi in the worst Jim Crow era is beyond reproach. The author’s simple style tells a story of the Meredith family distinct with clear and sharp easy to understand language and clear lines of distinction between happiness and sadness. Much outstanding features of this book are the strength, courage, and even the wit at times of this family.

The beauty of My Brother J-Boy is amplified by the excellent free hand drawings of Chuck Justo and the sharp clean photographs of personalities who had prominent roles in the Meredith Family. There is no question that the author embraced the full spectrum of her life, and the life of her family centered around her favorite family member, James H. Meredith, J-Boy.”

Luana F. Clayton, Retired English Professor, Jackson State University, Jackson, Mississippi
