I expected this book to help me write MY story. Boy, was I let down! It mostly contains writing exercises about random topics and extensive excerpts from prominent African-American writers. At least the excerpts led me to some works new to me. I found the African American Guide to Writing Nonfiction by Jewell Parker Rhodes to be a much better book to help the writer tell her story, even a fictional one.
