I finally found a book I have been looking for. I have checked in various libraries over the past several years, but have not been able to find it until today. I finally ran across it at Goodwill in Vienna, WV, for 50 cents.
Black Like Me, by John Howard Griffith, is the true account of the author’s travels and experiences through the American South in late 1959. Merely by changing the color of his skin from that of a white man to the darker tone of a black man, he experienced what it meant to be judged by nothing more than the color one’s skin. For six weeks Griffith traveled the South as a member of a minority “race”.
I look forward to reading this book.
