Fragments of Freedom
About this Item
McNally Robinson P.O.D.
John Badertscher was born into a family of educators in a small industrial town in Ohio during the Depression. After serving briefly as a Methodist minister, he completed his formal education with a PhD from the University of Chicago. He took a position in Religious Studies at the University of Winnipeg in 1971 and taught there until his retirement.
Fragments of Freedom is a memoir charting his growing awareness of the evil of racism, beginning with his childhood. The “fragments” trace his engagement with the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, and the refocussing made necessary by becoming a Canadian in the middle of his life. Because his pursuit of racial justice is entangled with his personal life and his faith, the book can be taken as a testimonial as well as one person’s experience of some of the most significant events of our time.
