Description Product Details
Roads From the Bottom is an inspiring first-person account of one family's determination to prevail over the harsh realities of being black in the sixties in a section of Vicksburg, Mississippi, called Marcus Bottom. Roads From the Bottom is a genuine example of telling the untold story of Mississippians. Chiplin's command of narrative voice and attention to detail persuade readers to reexamine stereotypical views of black life in the Deep South. In its echoing of Washington's Up From Slavery, Roads From the Bottom reminds us that autobiographical writing is one of the strongest forms of African American literature.
