Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall & Denver Moore (#56)
Ron is a successful rich white man, an art dealer in Fort Worth, Texas, and Denver is a Black homeless man, enslaved in the tenant farmer system of the South a generation ago. These two lives came together in a wondrous way to become a deep friendship based on strong faith and the love and guidance of Deborah, Ron's wife. Well written and inspirational. I especially liked how the voices of Ron and Denver came out in alternating chapters.
