Michele Norris looks at her own life and her parents’ lives as a means to understanding how their experiences colored her own growing up and view of the world. Their groundbreaking move to south Minneapolis is just one thing that will make this interesting to local readers. For anyone who wants to look at their own history through a different lens, Michele gives us tools to emulate. I read this in one day, yesterday, the day we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King. I’m glad this was on my Christmas list and proved to be as wonderful as I thought it would be.
