Buoyed by the honor, I believed the essay would be a piece of cake. First, I had served as an anonymous reader of the manuscript back in December 1996, and an excerpt of my report appeared as an endorsement on the book’s cover.

Somewhat difficult to read due to the relentless detail, and from reading it I came to admire and revere the life of this amazing woman. I gained an admiration for the struggle for racial and ethnic equality in Detroit and ypthe country during the 1940's, 1950’s, 1960’s and on into the ‘80’s &’90’s. Since this is the era of my life I truly appreciated the intimate detail of one small slice of the country and its struggles, which ongoing in 2018.

What can I say about Ms Boggs that hasn't been said? Her writing is readable and inspirational. This should be required reading in any history or political studies class. I especially enjoyed her comments about how she avoided burnout in her work. We so need more people like her in this country

Really am surprised that I hadn't heard of Grace before reading the book. She had double minority issues to deal with which made the book more interesting.
