This is Amerikka

I throughly enjoyed this book. The unsettling part about this book is that African Americans continue to have the same struggles Ms.Petry wrote about in 1946. It's like the black man and woman continue to be at odds with each other in order to survive in America.

A riveting story about a black single mom

My heart aches for Luttie and Bub Johnson. She tried to do her best while raising her son as a black single mother. Until a series of misfodtunate events took place. I was not prepared for the ending.
