Scars of Memory
This chapter talks about the author’s last conversation with Clarence Coe. It tells of Coe’s endurance of racism and segregation, and the scars that his painful encounters with the whites had left him with. The chapter mentions the author’s conversations with Coe and Matthew Davis about their religious faith and how it kept them going all those years. It also explains that the people whom the author had interviewed had another kind of faith which sustained them: the hope that democracy consisted of more than words on paper. The chapter notes that some think that they can make it individually without the less fortunate or the disadvantaged, but the larger truth can be learned from the experiences of people such as Coe.
