A novel of one man's triumph and tragedy in the civil rights era—from an author who "belongs with writers like William Faulkner and Ralph Ellison" (The Washington Post). When John Calvin Marshall graduated from Harvard in 1956, he was prepared for a life of teaching and relative tranquility. But history had another plan for him—a life of hard work and sacrifice for his fellow African-Americans in a struggle for decency, humanity, and dignity. His struggle pitted him between the two women he loved, and place him in the company of Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson and fellow civil rights agitator Malcom X. Ultimately, it cost him his life. In fearful, exciting, and visceral terms, the author of Do Lord Remember Me, envisions a compelling character whose life and times echo those of Martin Luther King Jr. And All Our Wounds Forgiven is a compelling political fable, a tender love story about a charismatic black leaders and the two women he loved, and a "startling look into the minds and hearts of those involved in the civil rights movement" (Kirkus Reviews).
