User reviews
Yes, this book is extremely graphic, and might be too much so for some readers. However, and this is a big however, every American needs to read it! The atrocities that we perpetuated during Jim Crow is something that is not taught in most schools. Yes, it is touched upon, but this is a topic that needs to be heard from someone who grew up in the South during this most tragic time period and witnessed the murders, tortures and utter violence.

Moody gives us a glimpse into what it was like to be a young black female growing up in that place at that time. It inspired me to take a road trip across Mississippi tracing the locations that she mentions. It was a sad trip, but I felt it was a good way for me (a white woman from the east coast) to get a better understanding of what actually happened.

I have purchased at least ten copies over the years and given to many friends who seemed interested in the topic.

This is by far my favorite book I have ever read--which includes thousands!
This book had a few typos, I hate to see that in any read. That aside I really loved this book and didn't want it to end. Ms Moody, a great woman and a great activist. I want to thank her for writing the book and above all I want to thank her for fighting for my rights. I enjoyed the whole book, but, really liked the portion on Ms Moody's involvement with the struggle for civil rights. I mean I almost cried when she spoke of how black people she knew and some she didn't know died for my human rights. I respect all who suffered so that I may have the right to vote or walk the streets without fear of being hanged because of the color of my skin. I must say at this point that I appreciate my white bothers and sisters for helping in my right to be free. What got to me even more while reading this book is the fact that young children and teenagers had the courage to stand up and speak out at a time when speaking out against racism could and normally did mean death! I can't say enough about this book. As far as I'm concerned it should be required reading in all high schools, because this book is relevant even in todays society.
Story of a young African American girl, Annie Moody, growing up in poor, rural, racist Mississippi in the 40's and 50's. whole the family is as poor as possible, Annie is hugely smart. She excels at school, is a top athlete, and clearly stands out from her peers. She is able to find work as a maid working for white women in town, which alleviates her family's poverty a little.
However, these advantages also mean that unlikely of her peers, Annie understands just how bad the racism is that controls every aspect of her life. As the violence increases (apparently after Brown is decided), Annie leaves town, first to work in new Orleans, and them to go to college in Jackson, Mississippi.
During college, she joins a air in at the local Woolworth lunch counter--one of the first in the Deep South. It makes national news, which means Annie can not go home again, for her own safety and that of her family. Instead, she joins the movement full time, working in another small town deep in southwest Mississippi.
This IS an autobiography, told very much fe Annie's point of view. Big changes were happening nationally, but this book refuses to put Annie's life in context. Instead, we hear about outside events only when Annie does. This can be frustrating--and I imagine it would be much more so if the reader doesn't a general familiarity with the timeline of the civil rights movement.
The flip side is that the narrative rings absolutely authentic. By sticking to Annie's point of view, the reader is drawn into her world, and sees that world as Annie experienced it.
This is the amazing story of Anne Moody, a Civil Rights worker who was in the forefront of the Movement from the first sit-ins in her native Mississippi. I cannot express how deeply I have been touched by reading her account of her earliest memories of searing poverty and hunger, and abuse at the hands of other family members. Her deep sensitivity to her environs, and to her own intellect have often taken her to the brink of breaking down, but her true inner strength always kept her going. No matter how discouraged and bitter she felt toward the Movement, not only in the South, but all over the U.S., and especially the government, she persevered for the sake of freedom. This is only the very tip of the iceberg - you have to read her full story to completely understand and comprehend the terror, the debasement and inhumanity that was displayed throughout the South during this tumultuous time in our history. Her first-hand account provides us with the unvarnished truth of what living through those times was like, for blacks as well as the few whites who also believed in the Movement. I wish I could meet her in person and thank her for taking the time to recall painful memories and putting pen to paper to keep the truth alive. This book should be part of all high school curricula-we must never forget this time in our history, and we must never allow for it or any other type of prejudice and discrimination to occur within our borders ever again.
This is an excellent book for understanding the reality of growing up in the south prior to the civil rights movement. Ms. Moody chronicles the fears, the dangers and the day to day survival that African Americans dealt with living under Jim Crow and white suppression. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone who wants to have a deeper understanding of that time in our history.
This is one of those books you pick up and it keeps you from sleeping because the story is so very compelling that you simply cannot put it down. This covers a time period of shame for our fledgling country that was formed by men and women who fled tyranny so that they could have religious freedom, but thought nothing in enslaving a free people. It is not so much a book to make you feel guilty, it is more a book that will help you understand what this young women, and many like her went through at this time in our history. Hearing her thoughts will be something that happens in your mind far past the time it takes you to read the book; you will finish this journey with a friend that tells you everything...
