Publisher's description: Studs Terkel tells us in his Foreword to the definitive Griffin Estate Edition of Black Like Me: 'This is a contemporary book, you bet.' Indeed, Black Like Me remains required reading in thousands of high schools and colleges forthis very reason. Regardless of how much progress has been made in eliminating outright racism from American life, Black Like Me endures as a great human b6s and humanitarian b6s document. In our era, when 'international' terrorism is most often defined in terms of a single ethnic designation and a single religion, we need to be reminded that America has been blinded by fear and racial intolerance before. As John Lennon wrote, 'Living is easy with eyes closed.' Black Like Me is the story of a man whoopened his eyes, and helped an entire nation to do likewise.
