In this sequel to One Upon a Time When We Were Colored, the author takes readers on a journey out of the segregated South of his childhood and into the explosive era of the 1960s. It is the story of one naive and hopeful "colored boy" struggling to become the strong, successful black man his southern community had sent him north to be.

Good Weekend Reading  Feb 8, 2001
This is a great book to sit down with on a cold weekend. Just grab a quilt and let yourself be taken to the South where the author writes about his life. Not one of them boring autobiographies but a good story.
