That moment changed his life. I was an angry soldier, says Bass. I was being asked to fight for freedom while at the same time, as a black man, I was constantly being told in many ways that I wasnt good enough to have that freedom.

Good Enough: One Mans Memoir on the Price of the Dream, is a living history of some of the greatest moments of 20th Century America: from his anger at his treatment as a soldier in the Deep South, to witnessing the cruelties of Buchenwald, to his awakening to new possibilities as he listened to Dr. Martin Luther Kings I Have a Dream speech during the March on Washington in 1963. Dr. Bass asks, Is the price too high? The price to realize the dream, he explains, is to stand up and be counted by doing the right thing, whether large or small, every day.
