Book Synopsis
“Betrayal and Conviction” is the autobiographical work of Bob Darby, a lifelong human rights activist. Darby came of age as a privileged Caucasian in the segregated South during the civil rights struggles and the Vietnam War. Darby’s stance against racism and the war created a rift between himself and some of his relatives and friends in his Georgia home town.
When Darby graduated from Emory University and enrolled at Harvard and Tufts, he found many who shared his admiration for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as well as his dedication to the anti-war movement.
Few of Darby’s friends realized that the anti-racism, anti-war activist was also fighting a personal war. The sensitive and gifted young man’s manic depression sometimes led to wild exuberance and other times to suisuicidal attempts to end his own life.
Darby is a masterful writer who makes the reader feel the excitement and frustration of his adventures, his passion for social justice, and his quest for normalcy.
