Praise

"Affecting, beautifully written and morally complex…The heart of the memoir is Gates’ portrait of his family, and its placement in a black society whose strength, richness and self-confidence thrived in the darkness of segregation."–Richard Eder, The Los Angeles Times

"[Colored People] may well become a classic of American memoir."–The Boston Globe
