Description

In this updated 20th anniversary edition of the landmark book, "Black, White, Other: Biracial Americans Talk About Race and Identity" (Morrow, Quill), award-winning journalist Lise Funderburg explores the lives of adult children of black/white unions. Chapter-opening essays give historical, political, and social context to first-person narratives on such topics as Family, Prejudice, Love and Romance, Work, Religion, Identity Politics, Citizenship, and Community. These voices of unflinching honesty, whipsmart humor, extraordinary insight and deep feeling comprise a stunning — and enduring — portrait of race in America. Anniversary ebook edition includes enhanced photos, a new foreword by novelist Mat Johnson (Pym, Hunting in Harlem, Incognegro: A Graphic Mystery), and links to updated (2013) commentary from the book's original participants, in which they reflect on the passage of two decades, what has changed in their experiences of race...and what has stayed the same.

    Excellent oral history on being multi-racial in America. I read everything she writes.
