Katherine Totten (katherine42) | 199 comments Jane Gill, native of Saratoga Springs, Saratoga High School Class of 1963, has penned her first novel, A Matter of Pride. It's the story of an African-American family's climb up the cultural ladder from the Civil War to today.
"I would like African-American youngsters to realize that they are not just descended from slaves," she said, "they are descended from heros. Also, I want people to remember that Florida is part of the South. A lot of times we think of it as a destination. But it is a part of the South and its past is somewhat sordid, too."
