The Black Notebooks: An Interior Journey
The Black Notebooks is one of the most extraordinary and courageous accounts of race in this country, seen through the eyes of a light-skinned black woman and a respected American poet. It challenges all our preconceived notions of what it means to be black or white, and what it means to be human.

The Black Notebooks is one of the most intrigued books that I have had the pleasure of being introduced to when Mrs. Derricotte, came to appear at the Community College of Allegheny County's Allegheny Campus on the North Side of Downtown Pittsburgh, PA. I will most indefinitely, write more poems as well as seeing what other poetic writers I can become familiar with. Thank You, Mrs. Derricotte!!! I really enjoyed your teaching.
