Brenda Clarkson Turpeau has completed her revised edition of “Almost Forgotten” and it is a must-read, and a keeper, not only for her family but for families all across America.
“Almost Forgotten” is a genealogical/historical book that not only factually traces the White and Black bloodlines of her family on and off the plantations but gives long overdue character and substantive feeling to the enslaved.
This book is filled with factual documentation and oral history that our parents and grandparents were not supposed to talk about and ends with successful proud children who know who they are and where they come from.
The Rev. Dr. Joseph E. Lowery and Ambassador Andrew Young, our civil rights icons, praised Turpeau for standing up and factually telling a side of our story that needed to be told.
