Reviews - What do customers think about Once Upon a Time When We Were Colored?
It's fine for a rainy day reading Jul 20, 2001
This is a nice story which can put you right on the couch next to him as you read. It's not all that unique a story though.
The Best Book I have Ever Read Mar 9, 1999
I like this book because it is a non-fiction book written by a good person who lead an eventful life. I have met Mr. Taulbert when he came to my school in 1996. he was a nice man then and he probably is a nice man now. I also liked THE LAST TRAIN NORTH; the sequel to When We Were Colored. I also liked the movie that was made from this book Once Upon a Time When We Were Colored.
