Citizens Creek tells two compelling stories in parallel: that of Cow Tom, a talented Creek Indian translator working during the American Indian Wars, and his granddaughter Rose, who continues to struggle for civil rights two generations later. Their quests for justice enlighten and enliven a little-known chapter of American history in surprising ways.

Tademy takes her family's story back to a little-chronicled, deliberately-forgotten time...and the struggle of three extraordinary generations of African-American men to forge brutal injustice and shattered promise into a limitless future for their children.

Tademy takes historical fact and mingles it with fiction to weave a vivid and dramatic account of what life was like for the four remarkable women who came before her. Beginning with Tademy's great-great-great-great grandmother Elisabeth, this is a family saga that sweeps from the early days of slavery through the Civil War into a pre-Civil Rights South-a unique and moving slice of America's past that will resonate with readers for generations to come.
