Backstairs at the White House based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
Very well written. I would like to read the original book by Lillian Rogers Parks and also see the Emmy nominated 1979 TV miniseries. Regardless of the reader's race, color, or creed, this story gives a personal and educational 'behind the scenes' glimpse into Presidential history, as well as the manners and customs of a more polite and mannered society. A good read!
I read and had been rereading it over and over many times over the years since I had this book. It was wonderful. I love the way it was written. It was beautifully written. I admired the way those women stand up tall and be proud to work at the white house regardless of the race. It showed that anyone who are black, white, brown, even red or green can work as long as they are respected. I would like to buy it in hardcover because my old book is starting to fall apart. I hope the printing compay will print more. If anyone will print more books of this title, please don't hestitate to inform me. Thank you.
This book is very strong and inspirational to alot of blacks these days. I am so into my ethnical background and would like to know more about my ancestors and personal history that I'd do anything for help on it. This novel inspires me because it is apart of me. It tells me about the struggle for blacks back in time when there was elections and new presidency. It tells me how life was for the blacks and how they got along through the struggle of new times.
