Black Like Me
A dramatic true story about crossing the color line in the segregated Deep South...a ten-million-copy classic in trade for the first time.
In the Deep South of the 1950s, journalist John Howard Griffin decided to cross the color line. Using medication that darkened his skin to deep brown, he exchanged his privileged life as a Southern white man for the disenfranchised world of an unemployed black man. His audacious, still chillingly relevant eyewitness history is a work about race and humanity-that in this new millennium still has something important to say to every American.

"A stinging indictment of thoughtless, needless inhumanity. No one can read it without suffering." -Dallas Morning News
