The Real Help: Living In, Living Out by Elizabeth Clark-Lewis
Note: This is a project initiated by Amanda and I to read the books recommended by the Association of Black Women Historians as alternatives to The Help. Please see the dedicated page I created for more information and for a schedule. We are hoping that more readers join us and we are also looking for others to host discussions.
I have a confession to make – I purchased this book for the project but somewhere in my travels I misplaced it. If you know where it is, please do let me know. I’m still hunting for it and when I get home I’m going to be pulling all the books off their shelves to see if it got mixed up somewhere. All this to say that I haven’t gotten the opportunity to read the book yet, unfortunately.
Marilyn, who joined Amanda and I recently in reading some of these books, did get a review and some discussion questions posted so please do go read her excellent post. Check out Amanda’s review as well for more information. I can’t wait to read the book myself, and will review it here when I do.
