Sample Book Insights:

#1 I grew up in Washington, DC, as the youngest of five children. My family was well-off for Black people, but we were not part of the city’s Black elite. We were always on the periphery, invited to the parties but not members of the club.

#2 I was always treated like a princess by my family. I was the youngest child in my family, and they always had time for me. I never felt different from my white American friends because my family was Catholic, and we always practiced our religion.

#3 I was raised by devout Catholics, and I attended Mass every Sunday and prayed together as a family every evening. I did not understand what my parents were saying, but I understood the importance of it.

#4 I had a very good teacher in first grade, my mother. She taught me how to spell Mississippi and other basic things. I was not a showoff in class, but I liked being smart.
