Gil Francisco, a decorated academic, and author of short stories such as: "Behind Success: A Memoir from the School of Hard Knocks”, and "The Tales of the Kanterberry Kids", has completed his new book "Buford's Mailbox Sketches of 1968", a gripping and potent firsthand look at the outcries for racial and gender equality, desegregation, and the end of the Vietnam War as told through the voice of a family's mailbox.
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Gil Francisco's exhilarating tale provides a fresh look into how the political and social events of 1968 impacted American families in the heartland. From the political assassination of the Martin Luther King Jr. to the fight for women's rights, Gil Francisco leaves no stone unturned as he flawlessly depicts the impacts of a tumultuous twelve months on the American family.
Year 1968, without question, was the year civil unrest and disobedience rose to the forefront of American life in a manner never seen since the South seceding from the Union. From the Vietnam War and the political assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy to the Democratic National Convention and the violent demonstrations demanding human rights, Americans were roused and demanded their voices be heard. During those tumultuous twelve months, not a single American family remained unscathed. The demands for national desegregation, racial equality, and women’s rights continued to reverberate. Needless to say, the cry for ending the Vietnam War was paramount.
Buford’s Mailbox: Sketches of 1968 depicts the life of a typical heartland family as told by the voice of the mailbox and how the events of 1968 insisting on social and political change impacted Molly Hatcher Buford’s family ties, triumphs, and tribulations.
