Mind-blowing. It's not news that it sucked to be poor and black in the fifties (nor is it news that it still sucks). But this book makes the vast ethical implications of that suckiness, and how we have all continued to benefit from it without even realizing it, horribly, horribly clear. There’s a kid in here that haunts me, too.
