Jim Crow was a way to keep blacks in bondage after slavery ended. But that crow dug his claws way down deep. He found a nesting place in our culture and in the individual lives of blacks as well as whites. Jim Crow is in our Collective Unconscious and our cells' memory, too. He’s in self-defeating belief systems that should have disappeared eons ago but haven't. Jim Crow did not fly away with the Civil Rights movement. He's still around. And he's doing just as much damage today as he did when it was common to be racist on the outside.
So the problem at hand is not the old Jim Crow but the one that flies today in stealth mode. That's why I decided to call the stories in my novel series HIDDEN CROW.
