Award-winning playwright, author, and critic Bonnie Greer's touching, funny, and thought-provoking memoir is a voyage into the making of a woman who set out to unmake what she'd been born and brought up to be.
'Proper girl' was a precious definition in segregated and racist America, where black life was deemed only three-fifths of white life. And the life of a black woman even less.
This compelling memoir will not just enlighten, engage, and enthrall, but will move you to tears with every word. Courage, defiance, and ultimately hope define the story of a life - indeed, a parallel life - that just had to be lived.
