Author Bill Sizemore confronted the legacy of his slave-owning ancestors, and traced the descendants of the enslaved through the Civil War, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, the Great Migration, and the Civil Rights movement. Then he met Uncle George, the 90 year-old son of an enslaved man held by the Sizemore family. Uncle George and Me was the result of his 8-year search and his growing understanding that our self-induced amnesia prevents a dialogue about slavery and its ongoing and crippling effects.
