From YouTube: Discovering Authors - Lottie Scott: "Deep South-Deep North, A Family's Journey"


Norwich native, longtime civil rights activist, and former president of the NAACP will speak about her book, Deep South-Deep North: A Family's Journey.

Scott tells both the heartbreaking and triumphant tale of her maturation into adulthood against a racially-charged, impoverished, yet fiercely loving backdrop in Longtown, South Carolina. Under the cloud of racial discrimination, difficult farm working conditions, and family tensions, Scott describes the unbreakable bonds of love that eventually emerged to forever bind her family members together. As the passing years turn to decades, and family members move north, Scott reveals how these bonds of love become a trans-formative power, forever altering the lives of each member of her family.
