Jacob Stroyer (ca. 1846 - February 7, 1908) was an African-American former slave who became preacher in Massachusetts. He is best known for his autobiography, My Life in the South. Stroyer was born on the Kensington Plantation in Eastover, South Carolina in either 1846 or 1849. Stroyer's father, Jacob, was born in Sierra Leone and was captured and brought to America as a youth. The younger Stroyer knew little about his father's family background, other than the names of his paternal grandparents. Stroyer's mother, Chloe, was born in South Carolina where her family had been enslaved for several generations.[1] As a youth, he worked as a hostler. After the Civil War, he attended schools in Columbia and Charleston. Stroyer moved to Worcester, Massachusetts in 1870. He attended Worcester Academy for two years. He was licensed as an African Methodist Episcopal preacher. In Newport, Rhode Island, he was ordained a deacon. He moved to Salem, Massachusetts to preach. He first published his autobiography, My Life in the South, in 1879. This was revised in 1898. Jacob Stroyer died in Salem Hospital in Salem on February 7, 1908 of heart disease. His death certificate states that the information used to fill out the "statistical remarks" on the certificate was derived from "Book written by himself." He is buried in Greenlawn Cemetery in Salem

Kenneth Fly went from town living to the life of a farm boy during the 1940s, 1950s, and early 1960s. It was a life of hard work without luxury. Instead of watching television and playing video games, he grew up working in the fields of North Carolina, handling firearms, operating machinery, and participating in other activities and tasks that are foreign to the youngsters, youth, and even men of today. In this series of personal narratives and anecdotes, Fly recalls those days with detail and humor. Life wasn’t always easy, but his mother did whatever was necessary to make a good home and loving environment for her family. His dad was a hardworking master carpenter whose behavior showed anyone watching that life is about morals, hard work, and self-respect. The Fly family is special because they so rarely complained and always managed to stay happy. For them, life wasn’t fancy, but relying on common sense and each other made it sweet.

This book is a short collection of memories about being white and living in South Africa during Apartheid. I wrote this book for the reader to easily understand what it was like to live in this environment. It is not a history lesson, but some personal experiences that I went through living in South Africa at the time. Living through apartheid I never even realized that it even existed, because we were brought up to believe that it was normal. Life was paradise for me and hell for others! Many of us did not know or care, and even if we did try to change the system, it would have resulted in prison or death. We believed that changing apartheid would have caused the country to fall into the hands of the communists, and many white people were fearful that black rule would have destroyed South Africa and their lives. The other side of the coin is that I can’t comprehend what the lives of most blacks was like, which was excruciatingly difficult, something that I didn‘t personally experience. Our history books never taught us anything good about blacks. I can’t remember ever learning anything positive that blacks did. What I did learn was that they were lazy, uneducated, dangerous, and drank a lot. “Stay away from them, and if they bother you call the police.” There were serious injustices in South Africa, and many black people suffered under the Apartheid Regime.

This book is not about the political history of Apartheid South Africa; it is about an extraordinary South African woman?s life. It depicts where she was born, and chronicles her courageous journey into exile to Lesotho, Zambia, Zaire, and Britain, culminating with a diplomatic assignment in the United States of America. This is where the politics of the day intersects with personal lives, making us all more deeply appreciative of how profoundly the ?personal is political?.

A major part of the legacy I want to pass down to my sons and grandchildren and my students is that I cannot be the Christian example I need to be unless I live in close relationship with Jesus Christ. Love Bugs, Peaches, and My Life in The South is about the legacy of those who've gone before and the legacy each of us can create for younger generations. With a heart full of gratitude, Barbara Dickens tells of the many people who have poured into her life. God used her family, her home church, and the Christian colleges she attended to lead her into a close relationship with Christ. After losing her dad when she was only ten, Barbara was surrounded by a loving mother, five siblings, and church family who made all the difference in her life. She learned how children need the support and love of adults outside of the home as much as inside it. Her own legacy has been in the classroom and in her home. The passion she has for mothering and teaching reflect her love of children and her view that they're our hope for the future. God has enabled her to show his love to her children, husband and the many students she's had in her classroom over the years.
