But if I didn't choose one then I wasn't allowed to write a review and I very much wanted to. What an amazing book. It is a slim read, and while some of it is clearly relevant to the times in which he lived, so much of it sounds like it could be written today. For those of us who will never know what it's like to be a minority and looked down upon or treated as "different", it is a revelation, a poignant insight into the everyday lives and tribulations of black Americans (and I suspect increasingly how foreigners are also being treated) It is touching, and also inspiring - it moves you to do more and to stand up and be counted. It is a wonderful book, and I recommend it for any reader, especially teenagers who will never learn about this in history class. because if we don't know our past, how can we possibly understand our present, or improve our future?
Beautiful, beautiful writing. Our book club reads something about Black history, or a book written by a Black author
every February to improve our minds and understanding. Our group consists of 4 White people, 2 Indian (from India)
people, one Asian person, and we all loved reading the book .Ignorance, Power, Bigotry are a horrible combination.
Being an academic he writes to impress himself more than to educated the reader; stark contrast to Booker T.
