Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First 100 Years

"When you get real old, honey," says Bessie Delany, "you lay it all on the table. There's an old saying: Only little children and old folks tell the truth." In Having Our Say Bessie, age 101, and her sister Sadie, age 103, do just that-and then some. Filled with humorous and poignant anecdotes, this inspiring dual memoir offers a rare glimpse of the birth of black freedom- and the rise of the black middle class-in America. It is a chronicle of remarkable achievement.—Oxford University Press

"A marvelous journey with two individuals embracing life and letting nothing stand in their way."—Submitted by Kyle W-H., Human Resources Manager
