Conclusion:

For some...
….not a lot of groundbreaking information on
…American race problem (lackluster scholarship).

For others…
The history of the United States is usually
taught in school from the perspective of the dominant white culture.
The lessons lay out some of the struggles,
… but without fully explaining the causes
…particularly the racist policies and actions of the U.S. government.
Books about black lives (including this one) can be eye-openers!
It just depends what you’ve been taught or experienced.
