Black History relates the story of black liberation in America through the lens of a gifted poet who by grace and good fortune has attained the American dream. Born of her life story, the music and the refrains of this inspiring collection do not quickly leave the reader. And what will linger longest are the passages where she addresses young people who are headed down the wrong path in life:
You must rid yourself of the badges of slavery,
The shackles that keep you down,
You must look at life in a positive light
Making decisions that are just and sound.
