San Diego, CA – WEBWIRE

The Glover-Williams is a hard-working, intelligent, dignified, intense, and persistent family. We set ourselves above no one, nor do we bow down to anyone.

Freddie H. Gilyard’s “Just People” was one of the books displayed by ReadersMagnet, a self-publishing and book marketing company, at the 2023 Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. The largest literary festival was held at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, last April 22-23, 2023.

“Just People” is a collection of facts, reflections, and anecdotes that trace the Glover-Williams family. The Glover-Williams family is a southern working Black family with strong religious ties. For a Black family, tracing the family history would include slavery and generational impacts. This book traces the origin of the family and gets to know the stories post-slavery.

The book talks about the impact of slavery on the lives of the Glover-Williams members. It also deals with history and stories from post-slavery to the twenty-first century.

In 1619 Black people in Africa were sold into the American slave market. Black slavery continued and was strongest in 1840 when more Black people were brutally enslaved and worked for the growth of the economy. Through the Emancipation Proclamation by Abraham Lincoln in January 1865, “all persons held as slaves” were freed; hence, the start of post-slavery days.

The book features members of the Glover-Williams family as they talk about the impact of the circumstances that affected their lives after Black slavery in America. These circumstances are in the form of Christianity, slavery, behavior, and love.
