Southern Strife: A Novel of Racial Tension in the 1960′s
by Valerie Stocking
The pain and rage of clashing cultural landscapes explode in this provocative and sobering look of America’s south during the mid-1960′s. Twelve-year-old Joy Bradford moves with her mother Jessica from their white Connecticut suburb to the racially divided town of Willets Point, Florida. Her friendship with Clay, a mixed-race boy and also a newcomer in town, sends shockwaves through her family and the community, increasing the growing racial tension that already exists.
Clay’s well-educated, African-American father Clytus attempts to open a clothing store in the white section of downtown Willets Point. This prompts Jessica’s new lawyer cum boyfriend and leader of the local Klan chapter, Bill McKendrick, to join with other white citizens in driving the family out of town. This forceful demand sets off an explosive confrontation that will change them all forever.
An absorbing and suspenseful coming-of-age story set against the tumultuous backdrop of racial tensions in mid-1960′s America, Southern Strife is a spellbinding journey full of insight and intensity.
