What did you love best about At the Dark End of the Street?
This book will make you cry.
What other book might you compare At the Dark End of the Street to and why?
It was similar to The Warmth of Other Suns in the vivid description of the Jim Crow South.
What does Robin Miles bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Miles is very easy to listen to.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
What is truly amazing is that any group of people could survive the treatment that African people have survived in America. The organization and activism of the community, the courage and dignity of the individuals are all a lesson to inform those interested in organizing and activism and restoring the dignity that was stolen from us.

I'm a white woman who grew up on Long Island, NY. I was a young girl in the late 50's and watched the news often with my parents. Harlem was often mentioned. I asked my dad if he would take me there. He did. As we drove down the alleys in Harlem, looking at poor like I never could have imagined, I cried for the people who lived there. At my young age before I was eight, I could not understand how they were allowed to live with so little, and no one was helping them. I have always had a heart for black people in my country. I will always understand their protest for better and fair living. At the Dark End of the Street is my favorite book.
