it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-fiction, all-time-favorites
Read in October, 2002 , read count: 2

I first read this more than 20 years ago and the impact on me was so profound that I still remember vivid details from that first reading. I read it again along with a class I was teaching. This incredible chronicle of the black experience in America is phenomenal. Some very graphic scenes, but a memorable experience.
