The essays in this book were both poignant and informative and caused me to look at the pictures in a different way.

Here's a book of essays that not only reminds us of the dignity to be found in our history as African-Americans, but shows us where to look for them. No longer are we limited to searching for our "roots" through the eyes of "other"; no longer do we have to find "Self" through the acknowledgement of those who have only managed a glimpse at the rich heritage that is African-Americanism. There is something wonderful happening with the emergence of these texts. We are finally learning to love ourselves, which has been the one ingredient lacking in our search for self-worth. This book is a must-read for African-Americans who have yet to learn that our uniqueness is a product of our upbringing, our families and their values and traditions. We are not lost between the pages of some historical text that suggest we are the "disenfranchised." We can finally see ourselves as we truly are - proud and honorable contributors to this nation, complete with a historical and familial past that go beyond the traditional references normally attributed to us. This book is a truly informative edition to any collection.
