Item description for THE SEARCH For Kum ba ya by Patricia A. Knott...
"Who's that on the other side of that wall, Momma?" asked the young Negro girl. "White folks," came the simple reply. This sad refrain played throughout the Jim Crow South in waiting rooms and restaurants. Slavery and Jim Crow affected all that is America today. The plight of the African American people is echoed by other cultures around the world, indicating a oneness of thought and behavior which has brought people of all nations to the brink of a "Red Sea" waiting to cross over into a land flowing with milk and honey. Allow The Search for Kum Ba Ya to guide you through the tough times of African American history to show you how to cross over into the land of promise. The Search.will help you gather strength for the journey and character for the abundance. Kum Ba Ya is not just a song we sing. It is a place where the captive roams free, spirits soar, and the lion lies down with the lamb. This magnificent place can be found by every tribe, every nation, and every generation. Search and you will find it. PATRICIA KNOTT is a native of the South and is happy to call it home. She credits growing up in the cotton fields of Mississippi with convincing her of the importance of getting an education and working hard to achieve her goals in life. She now practices medicine in the state of Arkansas. Her faith in God has helped her to look upon her years through the latter times of Jim Crow, Civil Rights, and then Affirmative Action as preparatory for service in His kingdom, in whatever manner He chooses to use that experience. It has given her the liberty to write her first book for publication, The Search for Kum Ba Ya.

Kum By Ya...Don't Let the Title Fool You Mar 19, 2008
Brilliant. Cerebral. Written by a female African American medical doctor. And, yes, that detail is important. For she delves deeply into multiple aspects of slavery, prejudice, hatred and oppression, not just the usual, mundane diatribe of the oppressed against the oppressor. Interestingly, the overall tenor of the book brightens the senses,enlightens the mentality, and brings about a catharsis of sorts without diminishing the significance of those dark topics in history. The best book in a long time to try to span the divide between black and white and between ignorance and enlightenment in this country. Must reading for anyone who is willing to surrender some preconceived ideas or to admit that we still have a ways to go - hence the subtitle. Educators, especially, ought to find the book helpful in providing a fresh perspective on all aspects of racial issues. Well researched and well written. An easy but intellectual read.
