I was blown away by “Madison Park,” a book just written by a colleague of mine, Eric Motley, about growing up in a tight-knit African-American enclave of Montgomery, Ala., that was built by a group of freed slaves led by his great-great grandfather. I ended up writing a foreword for it, because it taught me so much about the strength that comes from community and the grace that is bestowed by gratitude.
