A bitter sweet tour in 1962 of the Deep South with two engaging and completely different characters.

 As the son of working poor African American parents, I entered elementary school in the 1960s reading far beyond my grade level (much to the surprise of guidance counselors who had low expectations of “children like me”) and with a keen interest in astrophysics.

I knew the meaning of such words as “invulnerable,” “uncanny” or “inimitable” and couldn’t wait to learn more about cosmic rays, asteroids, dark stars and space travel. 

How and why was that?
