"Phil Allen's story is as unique as any personal, multi-generational African-American tragedy can be. And that means the narrative is also a painfully common one. Open Wounds names the reality: for himself, for his family, for this nation. What makes Allen's story so powerful is his pursuit of the facts, the implications, and the risks of healing. But in the end, it is less a hero's journey, and more a communal story of lived faith, honest communion, and dogged hope."
