It's all history

Black history is often said by white America it is in the past forget it. The ugly truth is it is still a part of America's history. I will never understand how a group of people could be so heartless and cruel. Black America never was happy with Jim Crow it's ignorance to say we were.

A true eye opener

I must say I found this audio book to be very informative, although I was raised up north every thing is still relevant
today. There are many people today in 2018 who wouldstill feel blacks are beneath them. Excellent book .

Personal stories that touch the heart

Tremendous personal reflections on the color divide era known as Jim Crow. For anyone who did not live through that era, these stories help put the current color divide in perspective.
