Description: From 1940 to 1970, five million African-Americans fled the South to the North, believing that there was more to life than grim Jim Crow. Debra Dickerson is daughter to two such unsure and hopeful migrants -- themselves children of the Great Depression -- former sharecroppers from Mississipi and Tennessee who settled in black, north St. Louis: a mother who was incapable of hatred and a father, a Marine for life, who seemed to thrive on his antipathy for the white man.

Born in 1959, one of six siblings, Debra Dickerson has led a life determined in large measure by the Southern Baptist work ethic and hardscrabble determination of her heritage, enabling her to overcome her own and America's presumptions of black victimhood. She is at once a rural Southern conservative and a mid-Western liberal. In this book, she bears brilliant witness to her rich and complex, if tumultuous, life as an American -- with an uncanny eye for the telling detail as she unmasks herself, her family and our society.
