A Grateful People : An Historical Account of the Founding of a Community
by Willie Marie Porter




Overview -

It was a dark time, but a light shone the way. It was a time of sadness, but also a time of joy. Green Grove was a place not only in terms of geography, but also in terms of a community with a mindset and paradigm of unparalleled and unending proportions. A Grateful People: An Historical Account of the Founding of a Community, chronicles the lives of the people who inhabited this piece of God's green earth-Green Grove, Lumpkin, Georgia.

In Green Grove, some owned their land and taught their children to do the same, while others sharecropped and lived a different kind of life trying as best they could to eke out a living working for the landowner. They may have been working for a man who treated them differently while their parents taught them that being different did not make them less. It was because of Green Grove-the physical and psychological place-that the children who lived there were able to become productive citizens throughout the United States of America and the world.

A Grateful People chronicles the life of a place that broke through the challenges of the times to create a place of hope where dreams of success became a reality with hard work and perseverance.
