The work, "Having Our Say" by Sarah and Elizabeth Delany, is one of the most foundational works expressing black American values through modern oral history techniques. This paper shows that many of those who have said and done extraordinary things in extraordinary times are not artists and writers, but everyday people with a simple set of values passed down to them by their times and the most influential people in their lives, their parents. The paper shows that the thoughts and expressions of value and quiet perseverance of the Delany sisters are a direct reflection of the words, actions, and thoughts of their loving and wise parents, Nanny James Logan Delany and Henry Beard Delany.
