A poetic look at the history of blacks in this country. Covering from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to Phillis Wheatley to Billy Holiday to Ella Fitzgerald to Duke Ellington to Jessie Owens to the Williams sisters and contemporary names such as Tamir Rice. Not to mention the fact he mentions the unknown men who fought and died in/for the Union and those who were brought here as slaves. There is passion and no holds bar telling from Alexander. The afterwards gives more details about the people seen and talked about. There is a lot given in very few words. There is a lot of punch per word for your money. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
