Abstract:

Drinking coffee elsewhere takes us into the lives of characters on the periphery, unsure of where they belong, from a Girl Scout camp, where a troupe of black girls are confronted with a group of white girls, whose defining feature turns out to be not their race but their disabilities; to the Million Man March on Washington, where a young man must decide where his allegiance to his father lies; and to Japan, where an international group of drifters find themselves starving, unable to find work.

Pleasant book giving insights into the African American Life

by alcohol88 (WorldCat user published 2011-05-21) Very Good Permalink

This overall is not a bad book. It entails many experiences and tries to relate issues related to African Americans. Its a constant and good reminder of our past, present and future. A noteworthy book to read.

Just my two cents here.
