Annie Laurie Harrisabout this book: After living a successful life and surpassing all medical prognosis, I found myself face to to face with the same stereotypes I had rencountered in the 1950s. It disturbed me that after achieving a Masters Degree and working internationally, I was still percieved as being "mentally retarded". My memoirs illustrates without question that I am a well educated, well traveled, out spoken, sophisticated woman of multicultural heritage. I was inspired to write my book because there remains nothing like it on the market. My memoir is the first book to ever contain a chronological view of the historical development of the civil rights movement from three different perspectives.
The conversational style I used when writing the book makes it an excellent teaching tool that allows the reader to take on one of the characters,seeing different periods of history from many perspectives.
Some reviews state: "Ms. Harris has written and insightful and unflinching account of her life."
• "All in all the book is easy to read and interesting. I'd suggest that its value, in particular, would be exceptional for young teens who are struggling with narcissistic issues and finding avenues to empathy, who are in need of a way to step outside of their own lives and see the world differently. She has some heartache, to be sure, but also hope and growth and accomplishment. Kudos to the author for her perseverance."
My book will inspire any one with any adversity that they can achieve a successful life
