Summary "Louisiana. 1969. Colleen, a white northern teacher, enters into the unfamiliar culture of a small southern town and its unwritten rules as the town surrenders to mandated school integration. Frank, a black high school football player, protects his family with a secret. And Evelyn, an experienced teacher and prominent member of the local black community, must decide whether she is willing to place trust in her new white colleague. Told alternatively by Colleen, Frank, and Evelyn, Freedom lessons is the story of how the lives of these three very different people intersect in a time when our nation faced, as it does today, a crisis of race, unity, and identity"--Page 4 of cover.
