I learned life-changing lessons from 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn'

Tom Clifton looks back, at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
"And the passage that changed my life was at the moment where Huck wakes up early one morning and sees Jim weeping for his family left behind. I remember stopping my reading and thinking long and hard about Jim. And realizing for the first time in my life that everything I had been taught about race was wrong."
