Book Recommendation

Hey ladies and gentlemen , check out this book called "Don't Play in The Sun" One Woman's Journey Through the Color Complex by Marita Golden.

In a hard-hitting meditation on the role that color plays among African Americans and in wider society, Marita Golden tells the story of how she has navigated through the color complex.

"Ah just couldn't see mahself married to no black man. It's too many black folks already.
We ought to lighten up the race."

—From "Their Eyes Were Watching God"

"This society measures progress for the Negro by how fast he can turn White."
—James Baldwin
