Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First 100 Years - Sarah L. Delany

Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First 100 Years

Filled with humorous and poignant anecdotes, this New York Times bestselling dual memoir offers a rare glimpse into the birth of black freedom and the rise of the black middle class in America. Sadie and Bessie's lifelong insights provide readers with a priceless oral history of our nation's past century.
Warm, feisty, and intelligent, the Delany sisters speak their mind in a book that is at once a vital historical record and a moving portrait of two remarkable women who continued to love, laugh, and embrace life after over a 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 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.
