Katrina Davis Bias
A key lesson in Katrina Bias’s unforgettable memoir, LESSONS LEARNED, is that no stereotype applies to ‘growing up black’ in the years from Jim Crow to Martin Luther King and beyond - at least not in Katrina’s family. Take the aunt who builds her own home in the 1930s, the father who moves his family from Texas to an upscale subdivision in Los Angeles, the mother who makes sure her children dress well and get educated, whatever drastic measures that might require. This is a memoir you cannot put down. I was just as excited as Katrina the day her nearly all-black Junior High got its first black teacher, and handsome at that!
