Quick Overview

The life story of Frances Kelley. Frances was an impoverished black youngster, with an insatiable craving for the good life. Leaving grandparents who had raised her for a career in show business was the first step, she thought, toward acquiring the life she wanted. Better Than I Was is the exciting, true story of Frances Kelley’s search for fulfillment. Over the years she had looked for something to ease her loneliness. She had tried “religion,” with unsatisfactory results. But one day something happened to turn her life around, and she found that material things and “the good life” didn’t guarantee happiness. Now, she declares, “I’m not all that I ought to be, and I’m not what I’m going to be, but I thank God I’m Better Than I Was.”
