Our Kind of People

A rare non-fiction read for me! Our Kind of People: Inside America’s Black Upper Class by Lawrence Otis Graham is a look into the world of elite African American families in the U.S. I was really intrigued by this book because this is a segment of the population that I hadn’t ever read or heard very much about. This book details the history of children’s groups, fraternities, sororities, and professional groups to which the “Black elite” belong; the right schools, churches, neighborhoods, summer camps, and vacation spots; and the old guard families is D.C, Atlanta, New York, Chicago, Detroit, and other cities with notable black upper class communities.

Whoa!! Really fascinating! If non-fiction is your cup of tea or if you’re into rich, old Black folks throwing shade, look no further. This book is RAD!
