In this episode 216, we visit with Kevin McIlvoy, author of “One Kind Favor,” a haunting and nuanced look at past and present racial injustices in the Appalachian Mountains.
Ghosts haunt the small Appalachian community of Cord, North Carolina. After a lynching is discovered and covered up, the ghosts of Cord begin to unearth the past truths of racism and social injustice to confront the townspeople and get justice for Lincoln Lennox.
Karen E. Bender, a National Book Award finalist and author of “Refund,” had this to say about the book, “Kevin McIlvoy is a writer of incisive moral vision, and One Kind Favor looks at the brutality of racial injustice in a North Carolina town with a powerful sense of place and clarity and insight.”
