Review: Crossing the Danger Water: Three Hundred Years of African-American Writing

User Review  - Yasmin - Goodreads

A fantastic read! A lot of pages, a lot of days to read this book, but well worth it! It has opened my eyes wider to wonder in some many ways that are undescribeable. So many of these writer did cross the danger waters and made it to the other side. I would recommend this book to anyone! Read full review
