A review by kaileycool
The Autobiography of an Ex-Coloured Man by James Weldon Johnson, Arna Bontemps


Read this for my “In the Heart of the City” class. Very engrossing in its variance between history and personal memoir. He seemed to get more able to poignantly consider his own relationship to “the negro problem” as he got closer to his current state, but I was not ready for his closing reflections. Damn.
