Read full description of the books:
Life on the Color Line is the perfect counter-balance to Rebecca Walker's Black, White, and Jewish. While Walker is a Generation X child in middle class, coastal America, Greg Williams' childhood is a 1960's, poor, midwestern tale, and highlights the absolute diversity of the multiracial experience.
Williams tells the story of his brutal, impoverished childhood with candor and sympathy, describing his tragic mulatto father and his distant white mother in differing levels of nuance. He manages to make both somewhat sympathetic, and adds a strong dimension of pathos to his younger brother whose life seems mired in drugs, alcohol, and violence. Williams' escape from such violence is not a "model minority" moment, rather it is one of extreme hardship and challenge. Williams' book provides candor, pathos, and intense insight into the multiracial experience of a previous generation and sheds light into the continued struggle for those of us who exist firmly "on the color line."
