A look at another African American lifestyle

This book was an eye-opener in that we get to view another way of African American lifestyle that many of us are unaware, black as well as white. Slavery forced us into a divide and conquer theory among blacks but Ms. Logan Alexander's family never forgot their African heritage and dedicated themselves to uplift the race leaving a legacy that is still intact. I recommend this book and look forward to reading her new book, Homelands and Waterways.
