Seems Like Old Times

bigotry and tolerance“There’s something wrong when a person can go to work, be subject to intolerance or abuse and have it be ignored and accepted by colleagues as part of the job.”
Sachin H. Jain, MD, MBA

Provenance, my novel, deals the effects of race and racism on three generations of a family. Provenance moves between the early part of the 20th Century when segregation and overt discrimination were the rule rather than the exception and  present day where my characters still face racism as a raw fact of life in America. Seems like old times when a recent article in the New York Times about the abuse of bigotry and intolerance is as relevant today as it was 200 years ago. Today the targets of discrimination today may be more varied but racial intolerance has the same impact.
