Sandi Brewster-walker has written a book about her early life in North Amityville, Long Island during the 1940s and 50s, when her family was considered colored. The new book gives us insight into the lives of a family with Long Island Native American roots. Despite the fact that the Natives did not know the land customs and laws of the Dutch and English, nor could they read or write either language, their marks, the "x" traded away forever their magnificent island. Brewster-walker is a descendant of many of the Natives that traded away Long Island. She, also talks about why many of the Southern blacks came to Long Island during the Great Migration of domestics. The book is a series of remembrances, while a young child in North Amityville. The Colored Girl from Long Island ends at the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement, when colored people became Negroes. Her story is told in her own words! Product Details
