A must read
Worth every penny spent! This is a great read that will leave you feeling satisfied.
As a freshman going into high school, this is one of the books my school suggested I read over the summer. I am so glad they suggested this book. I loved it!
I would highly recommend this book to anyone. Black Like Me really delves into the prejudices of white America during the 1960s. Personally, Black Like Me has given me a deeper understanding of both racism and that time period.
Not only is Black Like Me a great historical work, but it's also extremely intriguing. The work really opened up my eyes and made me see and understand.
That Black Like Me is in fact not a work of fiction but a work of nonfiction makes the read even more chilling. The fact that the events described in the story are true just fascinates me. I admire John Howard Griffin for going on this dangerous expedition and relating his thoughts and ideas so well.
I loved Black Like Me!
I'm currently reading this book. I'm a freshman going into high school. This book was a choice I have to read during the summer. So far it's great.
