After serving as a war correspondent in South Africa, Rwanda and the Middle East where he witnessed apartheid, ethnic cleansing and genocide, Chris Tomlinson returned to the United States and assessed ethnic violence in our own history. His personal journey in trying to understand racism is at the heart of his book, “Tomlinson Hill.”

He examined archival material from the “Dallas Morning News” and the “Marlin Democrat” about his family’s roots in Eastern Texas, then compiled and unpacked the multi-generational stories of two Tomlinson families, one white, the other black. The result is a depiction of racism that covers more than 150 years.
