Meet the Author

Virginia native Charles Michael Byrd is of black, white and Cherokee heritage. As Editor/Publisher of the Interracial Voice magazine (1995-2003), he appeared on Jim Lehrer’s NewsHour and wrote Op-Eds for the San Francisco Chronicle and Newsday. A student of Vedic scriptures, Mr. Byrd believes that individuals of mixed racial backgrounds quickly begin searching for a higher spiritual truth, something that allows them to make sense of the madness behind lumping human beings into separate and distinct racial groupings.
