From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
First of all this is a memoir about Austin and her life experiences as an African-American woman in our time. She tackled the issue of racism head on from it's earliest beginnings; our captivity from Africa to America; to today and how it is embedded in all aspects of American life. Systemic Racism is something that white America has blindfolds on when it comes to how they perceive and interact with people of color. Whether you are in a political, religious, educational or recreational environment it has been and apparently for the foreseeable future will always be there. Until white America is ready to show accountability, and change (which by the way, has to come from the heart) things which were easily broken will not be so easy to mend.
I said it was a hard read because I live it on a daily basis and to be honest it DOES make me feel some kind of way at times.
