Coming of Age in Mississippi
Revision as of 11:50, 14 April 2008 by Alex
"Coming of Age in Mississippi" is a study guide by Anne Moody, published in 1968. Moody is an African-American civil rights activist who left her home town and family determined to take part in protests and sit-ins in America's turbulent South in the 1960s.
In this now classic autobiography, she details the sights, smells, and suffering of growing up in a racist society and candidily reveals the soul of a black girl who had the courage to challenge it.
