Editorial Reviews

Review

“A fascinating window onto the social and political life of the educated [African American] elite during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Many of the documents are particularly rich because of personal voice.”—Evelyn Brooks Higginbotham, editor-in-chief of The Harvard Guide to African-American History



“This rich documentary collection and its helpful interpretative section, clear, nuanced, well-researched, is an education and a pleasure to read.”—Alfred A. Moss Jr., coauthor of From Slavery to Freedom: A History of African Americans

0 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Boston on September 24, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Ms. Cromwell in most of her books has barely touched on the lineage of her Mother's side of the family. Her books give only one side of the story and her life. Ms. Cromwell appears to be ashamed of her mother. She has embraced her aunt as a mother figure in another book. Why is she appear to be ashamed of the working class members of her family? Is that less colorful or exciting than rising up from slavery? This is black elitism.

I would suggest that readers, read between the lines of this book. Did her mother complete her education, was she pushed into the background by over bearing spinster aunts?

I would love to read more about Ms. Cromwell's mother.
