Through the Heart of the South

Every instinct Chris McAndrew developed growing up in his railroad town tells him the safe course for a white student who favors high school integration is to hold his tongue until he graduates and go s to college.

That’s what girlfriend Susan Marks wants him to do. It’s what town patriarch Grampy Harvard demands. But Monteenia, his family maid, sends him to Shortridge High each morning with breakfast and a clean shirt. Malachi Stevens, the new football teammate he comes to respect, gets a raw deal from their coaches. And Mr. Cooper, the glee club director, risks his job for his singers.

Chris knows where his loyalties should lie, but what price is he willing to pay to do the right thing?

THROUGH THE HEART OF THE SOUTH blends Kathryn Stockett’s “The Help,” exploring the South’s convoluted racial mores around domestic servants, with life in a culture that demands conformity from the young men it produces, like Pat Conroy’s “The Lords of Discipline.”
