With impressive scholarship and calm reasoning, the author relates the history of African Americans over the past two centuries to provide a context for the tensions between black men and women. Franklin's examination is a detailed and often grizzly account of the atrocities committed against blacks, and the way these, and ongoing oppression, force black men and women into roles that go against their African heritage. The riveting stories alone are worth the price of this important historical work --- read with understanding and compassion by Robin Miles. This account that will enlighten people of all ethnic backgrounds. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
