Summary
Returning home from his grandmother's memorial service the Summer of 1987, James O. Hill, Sr., was faced with the dilemma of how to begin to explore his family tree. Family members had made a commitment to become better acquainted, even though they lived so far apart in place and in time. As his relatives before him overcame enormous barriers to their survival, Mr. Hill overcame enormous obstacles to complete this memoir of their lives. James Hill discovered, through extensive research, that his family's ancestral lineage was actually traceable through eight generations and that he is a fifth-generation member of this very large and extraordinary Black Texas family. Emancipation of Eight Generations: The Chambers Family Treasure provides a detailed account of how family members survived as indentured servants and slaves and now as emancipated Blacks living in today's nonsegregated society fifty years after declaration of the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision which ended segregation here in America. Hill spent years on this project in order to make it as complete, accurate, and as up-to-date as possible. It was a long journey, but in the end it was a very gratifying journey. Mr. Hill is a shining example of the positive influence these eight generations of family have had on him. -- Provided by publisher, taken from dust jacket
