Excerpt from Nashville Burning Published on storySouth

storysouth An excerpt from Gerald Duff's as yet unpublished novel, Nashville Burning, has been featured in the spring 2015 issue of StorySouth. The published section is about the night that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Stokely Carmichael, Strom Thurmond, and Allen Ginsburg appeared in 1967 on the same stage at Vanderbilt in the student-run symposium called IMPACT. The effect in Nashville was rioting, tanks in the streets, buildings burning, and all that the title IMPACT implies. Nashville Burning is about fire in the city: its kindling, its blaze, and the ashes it left.
