Red Clay and Roses

Set in the Deep South, Red Clay and Roses is an historical novel that explores civil rights, interracial relations, and women’s issues in the 1950s and 60s. A fictionalized true story of life in the Deep South during the time of Jim Crow Law, and before Roe vs. Wade. Women were supposed to keep quiet and serve, abortion was illegal, adoption difficult, and racism rampant. The discovery of an old ledger opens a window into the dynamics of the 1950s-60s

Sybil Hamilton: Narrator’s 80 year old cousin, who tells Hannah her story and hands over her diaries. Nathan’s love interest.   I would have chosen The Titanic’s Rose Stuart but given the fact that she is no longer with us, I picked Lynn Cohen. I feel that she has aged gracefully enough to suit Sybil’s elderly demeanor and charm.

Nathan Grier: Grier son, medical student at Howard University in Washington, DC, Civil Rights activist.  Sybil’s love interest.   Shemar Moore, of course, just because I think he’s HOT. Also, he is a good actor who can talk street talk or speak eloquently.  I would also like to see him in the scene where Nathan is chopping wood without his shirt on.

Marilyn Monroe was on the first cover of Playboy, a fifty cent magazine that caused an argument between young Sybil and her friends.
