    • Ogletree signed a copy of this book for me nearly a decade ago, but I only now got around to giving it a read. The first hundred pages or so seemed to really speak to me, and I was kicking myself for waiting so long to open this part memoir/part biography/part history lesson. However, this book loses its luster and inspirational message about midway through - goes too in depth about a certain Associate Justice on the Supreme Court - and I had to labor to make it through the rest. Despite this se [...]


    • Be ready for some legalese, but a remarkably astute study of how Brown vs. Board of Education has been neglected, sidestepped and devalued. Also a scathing expose on the hypocritical Clarence Thomas. If you still have any question about how racism has permeated every corner of American life to the detriment of African-Americans, this book will set you straight.


    • I liked this book, but then lost interest about halfway through. I think it offers a lot of good information, and I like that it shows history through the personal view of Professor Ogletree. It's probably best, though, for someone not as well-versed in Brown v. Board and its aftermath :)


    • I already knew most of the stuff in this book, but it was still interesting, especially the personal stuff Ogletree was there for a lot of the stuff he writes about, so he's an incredibly impassioned writer, which I like. So sad the empty (and broken) promises of Brown v. Board
