A wonderful book to step outside of yourself and see the world through different angles. The anthology is occasionally how a black person in the U.K. sees African Americans; it's occasionally how black Africans in the U.K. relate to their mother countries; it's occasionally they see white people in the U.K and of course about how they see themselves. I live in California and I really enjoyed this. These perspectives are not often heard.

Once I cried and several times I was amused. Like all
