this was not what i expected, but it was well done and interesting and poignant at times. i didn't know it would be so much about texas, which i probably wouldn't have been compelled to read about, but she does a nice job of weaving her personal history with the country's history, and how it all fits in with texas history. in particular is the mythology of history that white americans have built up that she sets right.

more than anything, though, it really made me want to read her histories of sally hemings as it sounds she is the preeminent historian on the subject of her life. ( )

Annette Gordon-Reed’s history of race relations in the United States and particularly in the state of her birth, Texas combines memoir, family stories, history, and historical analysis in a short and powerful book. She starts with June 19, 1865, or Juneteenth. This was the day when General Gordon brought the victorious United States Army onto the island of Galveston, Texas and announced the enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation to the residents of the last rebellious Confederate state to surrender and stop fighting.

The overwhelming majority of white Texans had, from their first settlement in what was then Mexico, envisioned a place where the economy was based on the unpaid labor of enslaved Americans of African descent. And they did whatever they could to disobey the order. To this day Americans are living with the results of this refusal to live up the words of the Declaration of Independence that proclaimed equality. ( )

Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian Annette Gordon-Reed explores the history of Texas through the experiences of her family and the Black community in six short essays.

By title alone, I thought I was in for a very different book specifically about the history of Juneteenth and its celebration. What the book actually is, though, is a blend of memoir and history reflecting on the history of Texas as it pertained to slavery and Black Americans, and how that doesn't always line up with the origin stories of a nation that become almost mythic. Skillfully blending personal history with historical record, she touches on integration and how it affected her as the first Black student in a white school, the Alamo, and, yes, Juneteenth and the consequences (good and bad) from the proclamation. A fascinating account I would readily recommend to a wide variety of readers. ( )

Pulitzer Prize winning historian, Annette Gordon-Reed, has written a collection of essays which are historical documents and memoir of Black history, including her own, in Texas. Once again, the discrepancy between a stated political policy change and its reality, namely the supposed ending of slavery in Texas, is illuminated in this collection. It was a very interesting, well written,, and educational read, and clearly timely, as Juneteenth has so recently been declared a national holiday. When will we know a generation of Black Americans who do not live with the hypocrisy of America's racism? ( )

How to respond! I, too, am a Texan born in East Texas but transported at age 9 months to the El Paso area. Actually, my family (the three of us) lived in New Mexico for one or two years, then spent a year in Arizona returning to Anthony in early 1944. We lived on the New Mexico side of that village/town. Both of my parents were born and raised in East Texas with all the biases of white supremacy generated by their being raised on tenant farms (my mother) and having some land (90+ acres) near the Trinity River. By 1947 my parents had bought 5 acres of adobe soil between the Rio Grande and the Franklin Mountains so that they could raise their two daughters outside of the confines of village, town, city. From 2nd grade until I graduated high school, my family seemed to become more insular and disengaged from the 'outside' world. Annette Gordon - Reed recounts a far more involved family within the context of the larger society.
Gordon-Reed's book was used as a basis for discussion of Juneteenth on June 17, 2021 in a Zoom class. It coincided with Illinois making June 19 a state holiday and with President Biden signing the bill making it a national holiday. The book

Texas, perhaps more than any other state in the Union, lives in the public imagination as a place of extremes.
