Praise
"Author is a rural Claude Brown personalizing poverty and degradation and making it more real than any study or statistic could have done...Yet the book is far more than Claude Brown down home. It is also 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."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Written without a trace of sentimentality or apology, this is an unforgettable personal story -- the truth as a remarkable young woman named Anne Moody lived it. To read her book is to know what it is to have grown up black in Mississippi in the forties an fifties -- and to have survived with pride and courage intact.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.
Editors Note 1 Moody's famous autobiography is a classic work on growing up poor and Black in the rural South. Her searing account of life before the Civil Rights Movement is as moving as The Color Purple and as important as And Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. "A history of our time . . . (and) a reminder that we cannot now relax".--Senator Edward Kennedy.
