With unflinching honesty, Debra J. Dickerson examines her formative years in the New York Times Notable Book. Here is the captivating memoir of a black woman with a keen intellect and an abundance of motivation, but the inability to find herself despite her many triumphs.

Growing up in a low-income St. Louis neighborhood, Debra was the daughter of sharecroppers who had moved north in the Great Migration. She felt desperate to escape the confines of poverty. An eager reader, she plunged headfirst into academia, but joined the Air Force in lieu of college. Rising through the ranks she found direction but still strived to find self-acceptance.

This remarkable audio features a stellar reading by Robin Miles.
