|Plot Summary of These Eyes|
The writer writes about when he was a very troubled youth who was in and out of jail and reform school while growing up on Selma Alabama's segregated streets. He also speaks of the extremely racist conditions and situations he had to deal with and accept during the civil rights struggles of the fifty's and sixties. He explains why for him the jaws of racism had a much more deadly grip, and why Jim Crow's wrath created a more racist and hostile environment for him than it did for some of the others who were involved in the movement.
