What happens in A Lesson Before Dying is a remarkable story of transformation; your classes will learn lessons about life similar to those in Gaines’s other books, Jane Pittman and A Gathering of Old Men, both of which are available from us. In the late 1940s, Jefferson, a barely literate Black man, is sentenced to death for a murder he did not commit. Grant Wiggins, a teacher, is pressed into service by Jefferson's godmother to teach him self-respect. Students will be captivated by Jefferson’s failures and successes.
