Chris Tomlinson talked about his book, Tomlinson Hill: The Remarkable Story of Two Families who Share the Tomlinson Name - One White, One Black, in which he explores his family’s slave-owning history and the part of Texas that carries the family name, Tomlinson Hill. While researching his book, he found a history of two families, one white and one black. The author is the descendant of the Tomlinson Hill’s former slave owners, and former NFL running back LaDainian Tomlinson is a descendant of the hill’s former slaves. Mr. Tomlinson argued that the history of both families demonstrates how the legacy of slavery still affects American society. He spoke with Lavar Tomlinson, LaDainian’s younger brother and event coordinator at Tomlinson Touching Lives Foundation. close
