Personnal history at its best. Charlayne reminds us all of what decent families, and decent people had to put up with, what they were denied, how they were cheated - all because they weren't of the 'right' color.

Her story in this book will bring your blood to a boil, as well as make you smile time and again. She has done an excellent job of reminding us of how we were, how far we've come, and unfortunately how much further we have to go.

Quite excellent story -
