November 24, 2015 - "We Were the Blessed Ones," a new book by David E. Clemons, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

In the summer of June 1939, someplace over the horizon, the plains, and bright hills, lay expectations of a destitute family destined to face the worst thing that could possibly happen to them in the South, in a state that was known to up hold the laws in different ways, not to support everyone but just made for the most elite race of people who were not of the same color. In 1939 and years before, people of color were treated less than humans but as workers, not even as hired help, just as slaves owned by the so-called white masters.

"We Were the Blessed Ones" by David E. Clemons tells the tale of one family's journey out of slavery-and all of the little things in life that truly make one blessed.
