About each book


Gracie Hall-Hampton, the Arkansas Years 1917-1953

Gracie is a story for all levels of readers. It is an easy to read caption of the life of a black citizen. It engages all of our human emotions: sorrow, joy, pity shame etc. As a reader you are able to notice the high intentional upbeat energy of the people trying to make their way prosperous by just using their human instinct and survival instincts. At times you notice the lethargy of perhaps some broken dreams. The story of Gracie is sometimes spiritual. It is sometimes secular. But it is always at every turn something inspiring. It is a look into the life and heart, mind and spirit of a glorious creature named Gracie Hampton, and all those others who revolve around Gracie's world. If you don't know her you want to know her or you seem to think that you know other Black women like her. Whether being a writer is an identity or a career for Codis Hampton 2 , he delivered a spectacular read. It’s a work of excellence for sure.
