Paperback book by Sadie Delany and A. Elizabeth Delany with Amy Hill Hearth.
Warm, feisty, and intelligent, the Delany sisters speak their minds in a book that is at once a vital historical record and a moving portrait of two sisters who love, laugh, and embrace life after one hundred years of living side by side.
Their sharp memories show us the post-Reconstruction South and Booker T. Washington; Harlem's Golden Age and Langston Hughes, W.E.B. Du Bois and Paul Robeson. Bessie breaks barriers to become a dentist; Sadie quietly integrates the New York City school system as a high school teacher. Their extraordinary story makes an important contribution to our nation's heritage... and an indelible impression on our lives.
