Listed as Young Adult book in local library, but should be a must-read for every white American who hasn't learned about the African-American experience in slavery or in the Jim Crow South.

An excellent and powerful collection of stories of growing up black in the United States. The recollections are by people like Maya Angelou, Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, Ralph Abernathy, Alex Haley, Angela Davis, and many more. The humiliations and challenges they faced are very enlightening.
