17 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Becky Senf on October 16, 1999
Format: Hardcover
This collaborative book between Hughes and De Carava is small and wonderful. The story by Hughes is a gentle tale of one woman's life in Harlem in 1955. It is richly illustrated with the beautiful photographs of Harlem family life by De Carava.
