Previous owners name crossed out to inside cover. Wear and tear to D/J. A women walks down the streets of Harlem - past the dilapidated houses and broken, jagged liquor bottles; past the hustlers, crap shooters, addicts, and purshers; past the kids and old men idling on the fire escapes or sitting on garbage cans. The women's skin is black, but her memories, her fears, and her prejudices are those of a white woman. Inspited by John Howard Griffin's Black Like Me, written a full decade earlier, Grace Halsell decided to turn her own skin black - through pills and exposure to the sun - so she could record today's racial anguish in America from within. Her nightmarish ordeal as a black American began in July 1968. It was an extraordinary experience, and Soul Sister, the journal she kep during six agonizing months as a secretary at Harlem Hospital and as a $5.00-da-day domestic in Jackson and the Mississippi Delta Towns, is an extraordinary document. In this book, the author explains why she dropped out of white America and what she learned as she journeyed through the North and South, the same person as she had always been - but in black skin. What she records here is the most remarkable, provocative, powerful book to be written on today's racial agony. it is the story of America and Americans - men and women, white and black - inextricably entwined in a desperate struggle for survival, identity, and dignity. 209 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions etc.) Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
