Am I Black?
We are in Northern Virginia during the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. In some areas races are still divided by a street. Blacks on one side, whites are on the other. Not all schools are integrated. Of course there are those who insist on change. Now imagine a young man is thrown from a cliff side, screaming until he lands on the rocks below. He is later beaten until he’s unconscious, covered with leaves and left for dead. NOW IMAGINE THAT HE’S WHITE!!! Follow Ronald Trent Robey on his journey to answer the question, Am I Black? Ronnie learns so much about discrimination, and the differences between whites and blacks. He faced many pitfalls, but never gave up, and in the end he made a tremendous impact on everyone who let him into their lives. Heartfelt and inspiring, author Greg Robinson delivers a touching look into race relations, and reminds us the great value of every person regardless of the things that divide us.
