Johnston, Michael, Coles, Robert


In the fall of 1997, Michael Johnston went to the rural Mississippi Delta the "deep heart's core" of the South as a member of the Teach for America program, to become an English teacher in one of the poorest districts in the nation. At Greenville High School, he confronted a racially divided world in which his African-American students had to struggle daily against a legacy of crippling poverty and the scourges of drug addiction and gang violence that ravaged their community. In the Deep Heart's Core tells the story of how Johnston reached out to inspire his teenage students with all the means at his disposal from the language of the great poets to the strategies of chess to the vigor of athletics. Vibrantly alive with the rich atmosphere of the Mississippi Delta the haunting beauty of its hollows and the aching tragedy of its history In the Deep Heart's Core is a compassionate, eloquent, and profoundly moving book. It is an inspiring and unforgettable story of one young man's experience in the Teach for America program, and of how a new generation of teachers is reaching out to give hope to the students society has forgotten.Johnston, Michael is the author of 'In the Deep Heart's Core', published 2003 under ISBN 9780802140241 and ISBN 0802140246.
