Title: The Color of Angels
Author: Rusty Kontos
Publisher: Urban Diamond Publishing
A point of view from the Jim Crow Era no one dared to speak on….until now.
The Color of Angels follows a little girl named Sissy who grew up during the late 1950’s. When her father Billy Joe joined the KKK, her family was turned upside down. His hatred for anything not deemed pure by the Klan fueled him to commit unspeakable acts, not only against humanity, but within his family. He hated Sissy, he hated her before she ever took a breath, and he made sure to show that hatred whenever he could. Although this is a fictional story, it is based on events that were common knowledge to many families at that time, but were simply swept under the rug.
This story details the trials and tribulations that were endured by both sides before the Civil Rights Movement became a prominent fixture.
