The Journey Home by Clifton L. Taulbert
Writing Style: Familial, compliant.
Personal Highlights: What I really found appealing was the nostalgic view of family and kinship; a neglected value just about forgotten in 'those' cultural shifts desiring to pursue more. To be prayed for, blessed over, educated, hugged and fed in a near one-day visit to what I fondly call ‘ole Miss, touched me deeply. My favorite reflection was Taulbert musing on how ‘teachers were more than “teachers” —they were moral compasses, compliments to communities’. The overall premise of this journey, as Taulbert dutifully enlightened his son "...so that visiting the floor of the New York Stock Exchange will mean as much as visiting those that got us there..." was simply beautiful!
