My mother bought this book for me as a gift in 1990, in part because the author shares 75% of my name, but also because of the culture and hertiage woven into the text. In this day, cornrows are viewed as a 'stereotype' for people of color, but this book defines the origin of cornrows and the important significance they carry. I used this book in a class project for a Reading class I took, and my peers and professor loved it.
