about this book

The Delany sisters speak their mind in a book that is at once a vital historical record and a moving portrait of two remarkable women who continued to love, laugh, and embrace life after over a hundred years of living side by side.

Their sharp memories reveal the post-Reconstruction South and Booker T. Washington; Harlem's Golden Age and Langston Hughes, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Paul Robeson. Bessie breaks barriers to become a dentist; Sadie quietly integrates the New York City system as a high school teacher. Their extraordinary story makes an important contribution to our understanding of this period of American history.

"Having Our Say gives students a chance to really enjoy and engage in pleasure reading while learning about the aging process. Students are able to take an autobiographical account of two exceptional centenarians and apply real life accounts to more academic material—not to mention be exposed to successful and positive aspects of the aging process."—Professor Lori B. Werdenschlag, Associate Professor, Psychology Dept., Lyndon State College
