Rose Lee Jefferson overhears the ladies of the garden club discussing the city’s plans to level Dillon’s black community, Freedomtown, to build a park for the city’s white residents. The plan is carried out, and nothing remains of Freedomtown but the memories of its former residents and a series of drawings that Rose Lee makes to celebrate the community. “Meyer’s moving account is as much a documentary as a novel, with a vividly realized setting and a good array of characters to dramatize issues.”--Kirkus Reviews
