STORIES OF FIVE GENERATIONS OF THE BLACKBURN FAMILY FROM SLAVERY TO NOW
Author: DR. JOICE CHRISTINE BAILEY LEWIS
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
Category: Family & Relationships
During the Jim Crowe Era in Alabama, African- American children were told by their parents and teachers that they had to be “ten times better than their white counterparts, just to stay even”. Striving to be ten times better became the standard of behavior for Dr. Joice Christine Bailey Lewis who achieved success with ten times fewer resources and against ten times greater odds. What sustained her during the most diffi cult times was the evidence that her people had survived the hardships faced during two periods of slavery: the enslavement of Africans and the era of Sharecropping. Raised on a sharecropping farm and having no money to go to college, Dr. Lewis, nevertheless found a way to achieve a doctoral degree and experience success as an educator.
" “A woman was sitting on the witness stand, and the lawyer asked her, ‘Did you, or did you not, on the night of June 23rd have sex with a hippie on the back of a motorcycle in a peach orchard?’ She thought for a few minutes, then said, ‘What was that date again?’”—from the book Lawyers have long been known as master storytellers, and those from Kentucky are certainly no exception. Veteran oral historian and folklorist Lynwood Montell has collected tales from dozens of lawyers and judges from throughout the Bluegrass State, ranging from the story about the tough Jackson County judge who fined himself for being late to court to unwelcome dogs in the courtroom. Recorded just as they have been told for generations, these stories are sometimes funny, sometimes sad or frightening, sometimes raw and harrowing, but always remarkable. Far more than collection of lawyer jokes, Tales from Kentucky Lawyers recounts the most insightful, entertaining, and occasionally heartbreaking stories ever told by and about Kentucky lawyers and their clients, covering the spectrum from arson to homicide, domestic disagreements to sexual abuse, and everything in between. Tales from Kentucky Lawyers is a valuable resource for folklorists as well as an entertaining and vivid account of the often-surprising legal world.
