Here is that conversation about race that needs to transpire. And it goes like this: a black woman grows up in the segregated south and moves to Chicago becoming successful in the corporate world then retires and decides to substitute teach. There she meets a white woman around her age who grew up far north in Minnesota. From one end of the Mississippi River to the other, they have seen so many changes in their lives. They talk about their marriages (6 together) their lives, and the topic of diversity. They like to laugh in their discussions-maybe cry a little. So here you have it: a book that discusses what race has to do with growing up and developing friendship and love in our society: Growing up Ebony and Ivory.

I love this book; it was hard to put down. Both Lim and Joyce did an awesome job in telling their story. Lim happens to be my cousin and the history of our family was truely stated in this book. It was great to read both of their stories and how different their lives were but yet had some simliarity. Joyce family history was very interesting as well. You won't be disappointed in reading this book.
