This is a topic that should be covered in every high school history class. It tied things together and gave a timeline to individual things I have already known. It was nice to pick people that took very different routes/directions and follow their lives. The audio narrator (Robin Miles) was a gifted storyteller. Gave an overall rating of 4 stars because it could have been shorter if somethings were edited out since they were covered in previous chapters.
a moving blend of folklore, history, anthropology, and my own memoirs. an excellent read. once you pick it up, you won't put it down. I needed to go visit and talk to family before it's too late.
The book was very good, some parts were repetition, but still very good. I liked that the author gave her personal account in the last chapter.
And incredibly well written and performed remembrance of lost history. Everyone should read this so that everyone can understand the country the way it existed only a short time ago.
Thoroughly enjoyed this one! Author's excellent story telling and the vivid and skillful narration made me feel as if I was there, for each and every moment.
This book wss recommended by a couple friends. I'm so glad they told me about it. It was very well written and narrated by someone who knew what they were doing. I found the whole topic of of black migration in the US fascinating. I had never given the subject any thought and what an education I got.
I loved this history, but it is the pass, and if you do not know the pass, then you are doomed to repeat it. The genocide in Chicago is worst than Jim Crow, and I pray God steps in and end it soon.
