Rev. Edward Anderson exhibited his innate ability with persistence to write a chronicle of many who have quietly demonstrated their courage, knowledge, power, or benevolence in all walks of life in Wilkes County, Georgia.   Rev. Anderson’s power of authorship makes new things familiar, and familiar things new.  I highly endorse this book.

Ed Anderson’s study of leadership in local black culture is long overdue.  It is the kind of work widely needed for promotion of recognition and support of individuals of integrity, strength and wisdom.  Such individuals stand as guideposts for both their peers and for generations to come.  Anderson’s work is a model for greatly-needed cultural history.

Joseph B. Harris, Ph.D.

His love of history and genealogy in particular, is evident as the author lifts up the lives and contributions of ordinary people who have managed to do extraordinary things because of their God-given gifts and faith.

Rev. James White, Jr.
Pastor, New Ford Baptist Church

It is evident that the author has done his research as he brings us from the early stages of our struggles with disenfranchisement up to this point in time.  Despite the hardships, the subjects in this book have overcome with dignity.  Truly, they are an inspiration to us all.
