Read this bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on February 9, 2018
I’m a huge Alice walker fan can’t wait to read her biography when it’s released next year but this has kept me going. Beautifully written really informative and heartbreakingly sad. I had no idea that in my lifetime America treated its citizens so badly, it’s almost unthinkable today.

A Powerful Story about an American TreasureReviewed in the United States on April 27, 2020
Evelyn White writes a suspense-filled, insight-producing biography that reads like a cliff-hanging novel. Be prepared for an emotional roller coaster ride that will touch your soul. Her subject is one of the greatest American writers of this century whose work has had a profound and lasting impact on the causes of freedom, equality and moral courage.
