It includes excerps from slaves, doctors, teachers, writers, womens rights and black activists, maids, cooks, laundresses, etc.
It gives a real life account of what was really going on in the 1800's in black america.
The book made me laugh, cry, get angry, etc., while reading it I went through a barrage of emotions.
Among its entertainment values, it is also very educational and informative. I had no idea that there were black female lawyers and Doctors in the 1840's in the US. Some of these people were the first female lawyers and Doctors in the US.
By and far it is good reading whether for fun or information.
