In this now classic autobiography, she details the sights, smells, and suffering of growing up in a racist society and candidily reveals the soul of a black girl who had the courage to challenge it. The result is a touchstone work: an accurate, authoritative portrait of black family life in the rural South and a moving account of a woman's indomitable heart.
“A history of our time, seen from the bottom up, through the eyes of someone who decided for herself that things had to be changed.…”—New York Times Book Review
