Product Details


"I felt proud to be an American citizen reading Having Our Say…the two voices, beautifully blended…evoke an epic history…often cruel and brutal, but always deeply humane."
The New York Times Book Review

"The Lord won’t hold it against me that I’m colored because he made me that way! He thinks I am beautiful! And so do I even with all my wrinkles!"
— Bessie Delany, at age 102

"This Jim Crow mess was pure foolishness. It’s not law anymore, but it’s still in some people’s hearts. I just laugh it off, child. I never let prejudice stop me from what I wanted to do in this life."
— Sadie Delany, at age 104

"This book is destined to become a classic! The Delany sisters–leave to us the best of legacies-two sets of dancing footprints for us to  follow all our days ahead."
— Clarissa Pinkola Estés, author of Women Who Run With the Wolves

"An unforgettable testimony to the dignity and courage of African-American women."
— Shirlee Taylor Haizlip
