In this memoir, Dexter Jeffries tells about his experiences growing up in New York City with a black father and a white mother, both members of the American Communist Party at the height of the McCarthy era. His childhood was framed by the struggles for integration and civil rights, as well as by fighting the anti-Communist movement. As he shares his recollections and his search for identity, his story is placed in the context of today, enabling readers to understand the atmosphere in which he was raised.
