This book in my early 20s became my favorite book of all time because it made me think outside the box and view social relationships differently. It was about shaking off a slave mentality and how the past wrongs done to an oppressed people still hold true to the present day. I learned to accept everyone, including the oppressors, and that change has to begin with one person and shared, so more change can take place.
