Intolerable Burden explores the difficulty poor African Americans face getting any form of education in the Mississippi Delta. Most telling is that local school boards are often dominated by the same powerful racist elite families who owned the plantations and the workers themselves. These elites have no desire to see an educated population. Never have. Never will. Get my book, 10 Keys to African American History (regardless of your race), due out late August, and live. Trust the racists and perish.
