Book Review: A Different Drummer

Book Review #12 ā€“ A Different Drummer (William Melvin Kelley)

****

This book reads as a bit academic, but perhaps because it is older. It describes the voluntary exodus of all black people from a confederate state. Told from the perspective of various related white people observing, but not fully understanding, the exodus, it offers a haunting perspective on race relations, the South, and segregation.
