Growing Up A Child Of Two Races
There's a long road ahead to overcome America's racist past. There are some milestones to mark, though, like the fact that adults in love can usually get married without the government interfering.
It wasn't so when E. Dolores Johnson's parents got married in the 1940s. She was white, he was black, and they could have been arrested in Indiana for getting married.
So they fled to New York state to tie the knot. It was only when Dolores traced her family years later that she found a shocking secret. She reveals it in the book Say I’m Dead: A Family Memoir of Race, Secrets and Love.
The author visits to talk about her journey of discovery.
