A paper which presents a detailed examination of history. Using Anne Moody's book, "The Coming of Age in Mississippi" where one can get a clear picture of what civil rights meant to many African-Americans, the writer of this paper discusses many aspects of coming of age and historical significance. The paper also discusses the themes of anger and black poverty in the book.
From the Paper:"Moody's legacy was relevant in the 21st century because without it the changes may never have taken place. The changes were slow in coming and without the anger and approaches that Moody took and encouraged others to follow we might still be in the ages before the civil rights movements and that would be a tragedy not only to the black population but to the entire nation for the contributions the world would be missing for keeping the blacks down and oppressed."
