Lillian E. Smith wrote from her full heart, her keen mind, and her relentless conscience and with a determination that the human race would eventually get her message, "the" message, a message which was a long time coming and ignored by many of her fellow white southerners well into the 1960s and sadly beyond. It seems in retrospect that the subjects of desegregation and human rights could wait no longer. Her writing is intelligent, pointed and filled from beginning to end with compassion and a sure sense of rightness, concern and care for the world's society and its right use of will.
