Without a doubt!
The relationship between the older brother and his role in the family provides lot of laughs.
Excellent narration, the voice of an Actor who brings the story to life.
A great listening experience.
For me yes! the ability to bring the characters to life and give a resonant sound to the telling of the story made this story come to life for me.
Any and all great epic stories that have historical implication.
Not that I am aware of, but her work on the Great Migration is outstanding!
Yes, if it could have only been possible I would have wiled away the time all at once.
This is one of the most compelling eras of the history of this country. The absence of these voices from the telling of the history of this country is a deplorable shame! Thank you Isabel for bringing these voices to life and the inclusion of this epic era in my understanding of my own family and the role the Great Migration played in the history of Black people in the United States.
Absolutely! this is a warm and compelling story of life lived as a Bi-Racial teen in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 21st century. One would think the progressive liberal ideas of Northern California would produce a very different environment for a bi-racial teen; yet the struggle for identity is just as difficult as if the time was the 1950's and the setting was the old south.
The author tells two stories at once; the story of Neena and her journey with the manuscript her father has written about his enslaved ancestor, this intertwining of stories was a wonderful twist.
The telling of the story of what has been known in African-American history as "Box Boy Brown"
Black White Other...when the past can heal the future!
Black White Other is a great read for anyone adult or youth who wants to better understand the difficulties of living as a mixed race person in the united states; told from the point of view of a young girl growing into adulthood. A little corny at times but the messages are well articulated.
