A story of the blessings of liberty.
I loved this and was so sorry it finished so soon. If you feel the urge please feel free to write a biography of your great grandmother and her family set in rural NC. I would be first in line to buy it.
Hard to put into words what this piece means to me . I guess all I can say is, it inspires me to contemplate how good life is and then get on with it as best I can. Thanks for posting this Barry, and thanks Max!!!!!
Excellent essay. Too many Ehrenreichs today, including generations X and Z
Your great grandmama was an owner, where the products of her labor were hers to sell, not a sharecropper or a day laborer. You doth conflate too much.
