Vintage Becomes Timely

June Harris is an excellent storyteller. She has a richness of truly singular experiences to draw upon. She has the intelligence to recall stories from decades ago with clarity and integrity. She has the sensitivity to truly share herself in a way understandable and appreciable to anyone. This is the story of a gifted Black woman who has encountered prejudice, sexism, and other difficulties throughout her long life. However, as a 43-year-old White man, I can still relate to what she is telling us. She doesn't talk about "us and them". She only talks about us. When June Harris tells her story, she is telling the story of a human being, and she wants everyone to read it. I recommend you read the book a little at a time, so that you can really get to know what she has been through, how she sees the world. It is the genuine experience of relationship, of the notion of the human family, which she shares with everyone whom she encounters. For further information on this remarkable person, please read the following article about her:
