Part 2. The novel Push tells the story of an illiterate, overweight, and abused 16-year-old girl from Harlem. As Stephanie Goichman reports, novelist Sapphire based the book on her experiences as a teacher in New York City. (5:57).
Part 3. Another novelist has based her latest book on the events surrounding "The Tulsa Riot" of 1921. After the riot, an African-American community was bombed and burned to the ground.
