Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The fight against racism is waged many ways. This book tells the tale of people who challenge it one person and one relationship at a time. The development of a human ethic that embraces the human spirit in all its variety will emerge from their example.”  —Carol Moseley Braun

“Practical advice, by the book, for the bridal couple.”  —Associated Press

The Yuma Daily Sun

KLIATT
Hohman writes a weekly column on race relations and has been interracially married for over 10 years. Her book is a practical guide to interracial relationships based on her professional and personal experience. While it is subtitled as if it is specifically for "the black person," it is a useful guide for anyone of any race involved in such a relationship, including the families of the partners. It covers a wide range of topics, including meeting and falling in love with a member of another race, a list of the best places to live, dealing with parents and other relatives, planning a wedding, raising multiracial children and adjusting to racism for the white partners. The book concludes with a useful index of resources for the interracial couple. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2002, Lawrence Hill, dist. by Independent Publishers Group, 215p. notes. index., Ages 15 to adult.
