Ever since he was a small child, Johnny L. Thompson strived to one day be famous and make his family proud. But growing up in 1950s America as a black man, that dream seemed impossible.

In My Grandmother’s Son, Johnny illustrates what America was truly like for a black man in the 50s—abiding by the Jim Crow laws and enduring prejudice and racism while generally being treated as less-than. Johnny also examines the politics of that era—and also of today—with observations on how America can be better.

Despite his many obstacles, Johnny has had a wonderful life—a life that includes traveling the world with his daughter Angela and being able to appreciate the small things. Join him on his incredible journey.
