Summary
Warm, feisty, and intelligent, the Delany sisters speak their mind in a book that is at once a vital historical record and a moving portrait of two remarkable women who continued to love, laugh and embrace life after over 100 years of living side by side. Their sharp memories show readers the post-reconstruction south and Booker T. Washington; Harlem's Golden age and Langston Hughes, W.E.B. Dubois and Paul Robeson. Bessie breaks barriers to become a dentist; Sadie quietly integrates the New York City system as a schoolteacher
