The Marrow of Tradition

The Marrow of Tradition - Charles W. Chesnutt This was a difficult book to read because it is such an honest depiction of racial inequality during the reconstruction of the south after the civil war. But I think it was my favorite among the books I've read by Chesnutt, for that very honesty.
