ask "forgiveness" of several descendants of Ball slaves. On one occasion (a rare emotional occasion), when he brings a ninety-year-old black woman back to die dilapidated cabin in which she had been born, he weeps. And at the end of his search, he seeks expiation by travelling to Sierra Leone where he faces his "re- sponsibility" and participates in a "ceremony of commemoration" on the banks of a creek from which captured slaves had been sent to the West African coast to be taken by white traders to America. Such is the need even of an expatriate southerner, far removed from the sins of the fathers, too young even to have been involved in die South's system of Jim Crow. Such is the powerful hold of racial sin and guilt on the contemporary white conscience-- at least in those cases in which the possessors of diat conscience look deeply and honesdy into the soudiern past.
