I have been writing about both literature and race issues quite a lot lately. The saga of Margaret B. Jones, aka Margaret Seltzer, shows that I’ve been on to something.
She was the author of “Love and Consequences”, a memoir of growing up in a black foster family in South Central Los Angeles. Her tale was a wild ride with a strong mother and gang violence, death and redemption. It also turned out to not be true when Ms. Seltzer was ratted out by her own sister.
