Repercussions are felt for decades in a dozen lives after a racist beating turns to cold–blooded murder in a small Mississippi town in the 1950’s. Chicago–born Armstrong Todd is fifteen, black, and unused to the segregated ways of the Deep South when his mother sends him to spend the summer with relatives in her native rural Mississippi. For speaking a few innocuous words in French to a white woman, Armstrong pays the ultimate price when her husband, brother–in–law, and father–in–law decide to teach him a lesson. The lives of everyone involved in the incident—black and white—are changed forever, and the reverberations extend well into the next generation. Resonant with the sorrows of poverty and racial prejudice as well as the triumphs of love and social justice, Your Blues Ain't Like Mine marks the debut of a powerful, clear voice in contemporary fiction.
