Texte du rabat

Life is a Roller Coaster and you can enjoy the ride or not. Anne Geneva Rutledge has spent 94 years enjoying her ride. A retired college professor at Alabama A&M University in Huntsville, Alabama, Anne holds back nothing, whether it paints a sympathetic or unsympathetic canvas of herself, her family, or environment.

Born and raised in the Jim Crow South of Alabama, the author conveys how family is so important in shaping a black American's success or failure, whether it was the difficult 1920s of her birth, the civil rights era, or even today. With the help of Rutledge family members, she traces their pride and accomplishments to its origins with their slave ancestor, Jonas Rutledge, who at 13 years of age ran away from his slave master in Perry County, Alabama, starting a family of 22 children with his three wives, two of which he outlived.

Anne's memoir touches a broad brush of American history and what it means to not only be black, but a woman, in a white and male dominated society. And through it all, comes heartfelt passion that for those who are able to place themselves in others shoes will be exhilarating and thought provoking as the reader reviews the life of this Granddaughter of a Runaway Slave Boy!
