The author depicts a broad journey search for her ancestors that led her search to Argentina, West Africa, America's slave, Jamaica, and the United States Indian Choctaw Indians Reservation and the signing of Emancipation Proclamation. It reveals a story about how her father's parents left Argentina to come to the United States to make a better life but were horribly treated because of their enthnicity, with acute present-day racism taking on a pathological dimension, and where her father took on a life of crime in order to survive as a child in a racist society but turned his life around for the sake of his children. This book gives details of the life of her mother's family escape from slavery to jamaica and their struggles after their return as free men back to America. Her life is told as she grew up on one street in Greenville, Mississippi, where she attended a segregated school, graduated, and left the state of Mississippi to find nothing more than racism at many levels of life. This is a story that is published as nonfiction because of the secrecy that lies in the heart of white America and because of its depressive mentality when it comes to persons of color, free or bound. Throughout the book, the author expresses her joy and disappointments while negotiating through a racist education system while earning degrees in higher education as well as in the workplace of the Unites States. She emphasized her perseverance as a university student, elementary education schoolteacher, principal, and college and university professor in higher education, where she found that life comes in all phases, grounded in human triumph without integrity for many.
