The Street by Ann Petry

The spirited Lutie Johnson, a newly single mother whose efforts to claim a share of the American Dream for herself and her young son, meet frustration at every turn in 1940s Harlem. Opening a fresh perspective on the realities and challenges of black, female, working-class life, The Street became the first novel by an African American woman to sell more than a million copies.
