What an insightful journey! Upon the beloved Lerone Bennett, Jr.' s passing on Valentine's Day of this year, I did what I had been intending to do for years- read this masterpiece. I opened it on a Friday and finished it on Sunday. I could not put it down. Before the Mayflower touched so many parts of my soul. I traveled many new roads and some parts of the history were recalled. It was truly a long journey in night, into light and mostly into illumination. Just think, this scholar did all of this research before the advent of the Internet which means he read many documents and labored many hours in libraries and centers of archives. I could go on and on, but as one reader wrote, every person of color should read it. Actually, anyone of letters who seeks true insight should read it. What a magnificent record!
