Rate this:
Originally published to rave reviews, Pride of Family is the dazzling true story of an upper-middle-class African American clan - and four generations of extraordinary women. Carole Ione, rebel daughter from a long line of rebel daughters, traces her heritage from her mother, Leighla, a sad and lovely journalist, actress, and composer; to glamorous grandmother Be-Be, the popular restaurateur and former showgirl; to upright great-aunt Sistonie, one of Washington's first black female physicians; and, finally, to great-grandmother Frances Anne Rollin, the indomitable feminist-abolitionist. It is through her great-grandmother's brilliant diaries that Ione finds enlightenment - a deep connection to the women she cherishes and the proud, glorious history they share. Book jacket.
