Rhonda Rucker is best known in this region and beyond for her work in an interracial musical duo with her husband, Sparky Rucker. They travel from their home in Maryville, Tennessee, all over the country and occasionally the world bringing music and commentary on Southern and Appalachian music to a variety of venues. Their performances are delightful and also quite substantive. This book is based on a story that Rhonda has heard Sparky tell many times about the first time he challenged the segregation he faced in 1960 as a youngster growing up in Knoxville, Tennessee.
