I read this book way back in my high school days, and I thought that it said much more that it exposed in words. Being from Africa, you seem to get only the negative side of the stories and information about African Americans. You are bent to believe that all the do is play basket ball, sing,act, do stand-up comedy...and other arts of the sort. The book actually communicates a different message. You learn that there are so many African Americans that have contributed towards what America is today. However, the book also exposes the disunity that exists within the same society. Great Book though.
