This isn’t the usual historical biography from a black man. He’s able to pass as black or white and has a privileged upbringing. He has a unique perspective of just being a man during the times of segregation.

The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man was an excellent read and quite thought provoking. I rarely find books that I'm willing to read twice but I would read this book over and over again. In my opinion Johnson's one of the best classic writer's of his time. He writes with a brillance, which was way ahead of his time. He protrays a message that outlines the answer for the race question for both Black & White. He's a great inspiration to enhance the dream searcher. Most of all he gave me hope.
