Man, I had to read this book as a senior in high school and I'm so happy. While most kids were upset that they had to read another book about a black man's plight, i was moderately excited because in high school we are instructed to read shakespeare, etc. european, WASP type books and theres hardly any other cultural literature. This book is an excellent one to read when learning about the black man living and surviving within America. Its just not that easy! you'll discover why if you dive into this book. Most of my classmates had changed their opinions on this book after they started journeying through it with the character. He's insightful, adventurous and hardworking! Please read this book, you will not fully understand history if you dont read something from this perspective.
