About the Book
This is a true story about me, Carl E. Franklin; a young Black man that grew up in a smal southern Texas town. In my autobiography or memoir as some would put it. Here I talk about how I and my family grew up being poor. I will tell you about my experiences with my family as we moved from place to place as migrant workers. I talk about the hardships we endured along the way. In this book I talk about the racism that I have encountered as I grew up. Not all Blacks grew up poor, but unfortunately my family was one that did. I am here to tell my story.
