I defy anyone today who attempts to tell me who I am, or tries to define me other than the man I know myself to be: a strong African from the Cushite tradition born in America and covered by the blood of Jesus Christ.

Through his family’s history, Elvie Barlow has captured the tragedy and then triumph of black Americans who endured slavery. Tracing his roots through documentation and family storytelling, readers are transported in time and to a place and period in American history in which all men were not created equal. Throughout the book, Barlow weaves historic facts with his own observations about what life must have been like for his ancestors and on the state of race relations today. Within the text, Barlow never hesitates to share his Christian faith. The resulting book is a personal story documenting Barlow’s family, from his great-great-great-great-grandmother Lydia Stephens in Charleston, South Carolina, to his own life story growing up in Albany, Georgia.
