Negroland

24040176

In Negroland, author Margo Jefferson recalls her childhood living in Chicago with her doctor father and former social worker turned housewife and socialite mother. She and her sister Denise were groomed to be the best and to look their best at all times. In addition, Margo recalls the happenings of the times, many of which I was not familiar with. This fascinating story kept me company many days while commuting. Forget the housewives shows, if you want a valid, truthful expression about middle and upper class Blacks, check this book out. I also have to admit that this book enlightened me about my family members.
