In Getting Up and Going Home, Anderson tells the story of his life growing up in the segregated south and his coming to terms with his identity as both a black American and a Christian. He tells his story in a vivid and compelling fashion, blending personal recollections with insights into the history and culture of the south.

Anderson shows us how growing up in the south fundamentally shaped his understanding of both himself and the world around him, and how he came to terms with his dual identities. He reveals how his faith helped him to find hope and strength in the face of hardship and to build a meaningful and lasting relationship with God.

This book is a powerful and moving account of one man's journey from innocence to experience, from the segregated south to the Christian faith. It is an essential read for anyone interested in understanding the history and culture of the south, and in understanding the power of faith to overcome adversity.; 8vo; 287 pages.
