From MSU Today on Impact Radio: The One Book, One Community program encourages the East Lansing and MSU community to read the same book over a six-week period and to come together to discuss it in a variety of settings. The 2007 selection is Susan Carol McCarthy’s “Lay That Trumpet in Our Hands.”
Susan talks about her father and how he inspired her to write the book. And she talks about her decision to tell the book’s story through the eyes of the Reesa McMahon character. Evangeline Moore, whose father and mother also inspired McCarthy, joins the conversation and talks about her feelings about the book and about the continuing struggle for civil rights and racial equality.
