The author shares his perspectives and insights into the formidable world of a racist society. Though he describes what many might think is a boot-strap life, Franklin recognizes the contributions of many to the successes of many. Details about family anchor this poignant account of a journey to distinction. Born an intellectual, Franklin recalls the road to scholarship and the discipline required to attain it. All throughout, race and racialized context is the silver lining in the backdrop that allows for reflection. This volume is respectful of the tensions that must have existed within the Talented Tenth but lovingly honest about its shortcomings. He recounts life with a list of historical giants whose work is the foundation upon which current activism should be based. He provides a blueprint of the house that social change is. Triumphant and lovely.
