Open the Unusual Door: True Life Stories of Challenge, Adventure, and Success by Black Americans

Open the Unusual Door: True Life Stories of Challenge, Adventure, and Success by Black Americans

Sometimes life offers us chances to change our direction. These opportunities can be obvious, but many times they come as a surprise and, if we’re not paying close attention, we can miss the door leading to change. All of the authors in this inspiring collection took advantage of the hand they were dealt—a chance to triumph, make a comeback, or, in some cases, simply survive. Barbara Summers has selected an intriguing collection of autobiographical essays and edited them into a thought-provoking anthology that teaches us how to recognize the right door, open it, and find the strength to walk through it.
