In writing his book, Tomlinson Hill: The Remarkable Story of Two Families Who Share the Tomlinson Name - One White, One Black, Chris Tomlinson asks himself the question, "What crimes had my ancestors committed to maintain their power and privilege? Did they know what they did was wrong? As an American and Texan, I wanted to understand the sins of our fathers." Chris was AP bureau chief in Nairobi, Kenya, covering 9 wars on the African continent in his 11 years there, and he returns to Texas to pen an unblinking history, both personal and of Texas, related to the aftermath of the Civil War. Chris is currently business columnist for the Houston Chronicle.
On the TomlinsonHill.com website you'll find interviews and spots from the movie about Chris' book.
