Baker & Taylor
Embracing the belief systems of her Southern hometown, Tab witnesses changes in the attitudes throughout the course of a 1960s gubernatorial campaign, which is marked by the establishment of a voting school for church members.

Blackwell North Amer
Tab is fast growing into an opinionated, intransigent teenager, appalled by the attitudes of her liberal Berkeley-based aunt - until Aunt Eugenia comes for a summer visit and whisks Tab, and her sister Tina, off to a strange place in the mountains of Tennessee where integration flourishes.
Charles, Tab's father, has always conformed to the political dictates of family, going back to the time of slavery - until this summer, when he sees new hope for his community and his state in the guise of a New South candidate for governor.
Maudie, once a childhood friend of Tab's, couldn't care less about what happens to the struggles of her black brothers and sisters, as long as she gets to leave the confines of the Tuskegee Polio Clinic - until she lands in the backwoods of Alabama and starts a voting school for members of the Word of Truth Missionary Baptist Church.
This summer, none of them set out to be involved in the swirling winds of change that are engulfing the country, and if they're lucky, they won't be - or maybe, if they're lucky, they will.
