Five Smooth Stones - Ann Fairbairn David is a poor black man raised in New Orleans during the depression era. He’s mentored by a white benefactor and attends college, ultimately meeting Sarah Kent, the white woman who will, one day, become his wife. It will be years, for they will struggle with the extraordinary pressures of interracial relationship, which force them apart. He will move on to do great things, become a highly visible leader in the black struggle, and will rise above the obstacles of race and poverty to obtain an education at Harvard and Oxford.Five Smooth Stones is one of the best books I have ever read that left a resounding impact on me the reader. I read this book as young teenager, remembering how the words affected me, made me cry, made me hope. The story was about undeniable love between a black man and white woman. It’s about the Civil Rights Movement, and sacrifices to make the world better for a group of people. This is one the most positive imageries of blacks rising above racism to demands their worth in life. I love this book for its positive image. I cried, for it reminded me of Martin Luther King. I felt despair for two people who loved and simply wanted have a normal family life together. Written in 1966, the themes still prevail in current society. We still talk about RaceFail 44 years later but in a broader sense incorporating all people of color
