An inspiring story of how God called one man to "go back and make a difference"

Dolphus Weary knows from personal experience just how harmful racial division can be. Growing up in rural Mississippi, he leared that if poverty, hunger, and disease didn't kill him, racism, bigotry, or the Klan just might. So when a college basketball scholarship gave him the opportunity to get away from the broken, racially divided city of Mendenhall, he jumped at the chance. But he couldn't outrun racism.

Eventually God called him back to his hometown--to the city where the railroad tracks not only separate economic classes but also represent a divide in the church.
