Summary
This book focuses on the women of Alexander's own family as representative of a subcaste of the African-American community. Their forbears include Africans, Native Americans, and whites. These women of color live and die in a shadowy realm situated somewhere between the legal, social, and economic extremes of empowered whites and subjugated blacks
