Journey Up from Down South

Journey Up from Down South - Thaddeus H. Spratlen

Journey Up from Down South

De (autor): Thaddeus H. Spratlen


Journey Up from Down South describes what struggle, resilience, hope, and family life look like for African Americans who achieve far beyond the circumstances of their birth. The author, his wife of sixty years, and many around them were successful in "lifting as they climbed" over the course of their lives. The author's journey in this memoir is organized around migration from the Jim Crow South to the North and West for better opportunities.


Together, the author and his wife moved from Depression-era poverty, through undergraduate and graduate degrees, and into the mainstream of higher education-battling discriminatory practices during their rise. Through the lens of his family, the author brings to bear his research skills to describe some of the most important issues affecting Black Americans from Reconstruction to the present.


"We turned those obstacles into opportunities. We persevered and won. Our story had a good ending. But to keep it real, our journey will be continued by others. In the end, readers are reminded of the harsh realities and restrictions of how racism still makes 'living while Black' a problem."
