I had to read this book for a Gender Studies class. For educational purposes, this book is great to explore the dynamics between the characters and the relationships in the book.
Is a great example of life for African Americans prior to the civil rights movement, but also shows the amount of success that these families experience despite the amount of prejudice and racism throughout their lives.
Good, quick read (done in a few days). Contains a lot of characters and character description so it moves quickly.
Dorothy West also gives good insight to the prejudice within the African American community of those who are different- especially with the use of "light-skinned" vs "dark-skinned" vs white.
Very interesting read!
