Pat Conroy's The Water is Wide A Memoir Summary by Ant Hive Media Book Summary

This is a Summary of Pat Conroy's memoir titled "The Water is Wide". Conroy is a Southerner and as a white American in the Deep South in the 1950s admits to biased behavior against blacks, particularly when he was in high school. However, his politics changed in college and his liberal ideas are reinforced when he visits the Nazi concentration camps. When he was young teacher, he witnessed the extreme grief of his students over the death of Martin Luther King, leader of the African American Civil Rights Movement.

Wanting to act on his new-found idealism, Pat applies for the Peace Corps but he never receives a reply. Not one to easily give up on his resolve to change bigotry and hatred, he applies for a teaching position in Yamacraw Island. Pat is fully aware that Yamacraw, an isolated island off the coast of South Carolina, is populated by blacks. For hundreds of years the inhabitants have lived on the produce of their farms and from the bounty of the sea, a way of life that practically isolates them from the rest of the world. At Yamacraw, Pat hopes to make a difference, no matter how small, to eliminate racial prejudice by helping in the education of the island’s predominantly black school children. Superintendent Dr. Henry Piedmont is more than happy to approve his application for a teaching position.
